LANSING, MICHIGAN — A seven-year veteran firefighter and former U.S. Marine who served in Iraq was killed after a deliberate hit-and-run crash in Lansing, Michigan on Wednesday.
The incident took place when firefighter Dennis Rodeman was collecting donations for a charity near the intersection of Cedar Street and Jolly Road in Lansing, the Lansing State Journal reported.
Rodeman reportedly had a verbal exchange with a 22-year-old Lansing man. The man reportedly was upset for some unknown reasons and circled back and hit Rodeman deliberately before fleeing the scene.
The man fled in his car and was pursued by police to a neighborhood roughly four miles from where Rodeman was hit, local Fox News affiliate WJBK reported. He then abandoned his car and tried to flee on foot but was caught by police.
The suspect has been held on suspicion of murder and felony fleeing and eluding.
