Man Sentenced For I-94 Shootout With Police

A man suspected of murdering his mother in Alabama has been sentenced in Van Buren County for a gunfight with police just before his surrender, but he probably won’t do much time in Michigan. Landon Harbin surrendered as soon as he ran out of bullets. Michigan State Police troopers and Van Buren County Sheriff’s deputies had executed a felony stop along I-94 near Lawrence because the car he was driving was listed as stolen. No one was hurt in the shootout. Harbin pled guilty to two counts of attempted murder and was given 15 to 50-years for those crimes yesterday, with two more years tacked on for using a gun. The prosecutor in Madison County, Alabama was waiting until the charges in Michigan were dealt with before pursuing extradition. Landon will likely soon be headed back to Alabama, where he has been sought since September 8th for the shooting death of Jana Harbin.
