A trial date has not been set yet for a Plymouth man suspected of holding a woman against her will and brandishing a handgun threatening to kill himself and pointing that weapon at police.
On Friday, May 26, Vincent Carnegie allegedly forced a woman from her home in the 11,000 block of Michigan Street and later hid from police in a tree line at a location on King Road. He was reportedly hiding after hearing police were looking for him over the scanner.
Police found Carnegie and he reportedly pointed a gun at himself and at the officers. A standoff lasted for approximately 90 minutes before a Plymouth police officer struggled to get the gun away from Carnegie, according to court documents. Those documents also state that the gun discharged and a bullet struck Carnegie in the chest. He reportedly fired the weapon. Carnegie was then transported to Memorial Hospital in South Bend and later lodged in the Marshall County Jail.
Carnegie’s next court hearing is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 21 for a change of plea hearing in Marshall County Superior Court No. 1. Carnegie faces felony charges of burglary, kidnapping, theft, auto theft, resisting law enforcement, and pointing a firearm. He is also charged with a misdemeanor count of domestic battery. He is being held on a $100,000 cash bond.
