KENTWOOD, Mich. (WZZM) -- Police have identified the armed man shot and killed late last Wednesday as 47-year-old Timothy Richard Arnold, according to a department news release.

Officers responded to Sutton Club Apartments, located near the corner of 60th Street and Kalamazoo Avenue, to check up on Arnold, who was a resident. A family friend had contacted police to say he was suicidal.

No one answered when two officers from the Kentwood Police Department knocked on the door. 

Carter was placed on administrative leave immediately following the incident and will be returning to an administrative assignment this week, according to the release.

The incident remains under investigation by the Kent County Sheriff's Department.
