21-year-old charged with killing Belleville resident in Canton road rage shooting

A 21-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a Belleville resident who was fatally shot in broad daylight during a Canton Township road rage dispute, officials said.

Jacor Burch, 21, was arraigned Monday (July 25) on charges of first-degree homicide and felony firearm. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of life in prison.

Burch is accused of killing Michael Paul, 37, of Belleville, around 5:18 p.m. June 10 during a road rage dispute along Haggerty Road between Palmer Road and Michigan Avenue, according to authorities.

Officials said they were called to the area after a traffic altercation led to gunfire. Paul had been shot multiple times, and later died from his injuries, police said.

Burch fled north on Haggerty Road in a gray 2013-2017 Chevrolet Equinox, authorities said. A second vehicle linked to the incident was described as a newer-model white Dodge Ram pickup truck.
