Detroiter killed in drug raid

An Ann Arbor police officer, caught
in a situation demanding a split-second
decision, shot and killed a 28-year-old
Detroit man during a drug raid early
Wednesday morning in Ypsilanti.
The victim, Lesvah Pugh, was hit
with a single shotgun blast in the upper
chest after he dove out of a second-story
townhouse window at 739 S. Mansfield
St. on Ypsilanti's south side, state
police said.
PATROLMAN JOHN Francis fired
the shot after Pugh ran from the
residence, when undercover police
raided the townhouse, police said.
Several packets of "decks" of suspec-
ted brown Mexican heroin were repor-
tedly fished out of the townhouse's

Autopsy reports indicate that Pugh's
aorta was severed, resulting in near-
instant death, police said.
The incident is currently under in-
vestigation by the Washtenaw County
Prosecutor's Office. Assistant
Prosecutor Lynwood Noah said in his
preliminary assessment of the case,
that Francis had to react quickly to the
"AS THE other officers went to the
front door, Francis was going around
the rear," Noah said. "With the lighting
the way it was, he was in a shadowy'
area. In his statement, Francis in-
dicated that he heard glass breaking,
then a 'thud'. He said he then saw Pugh
running away. He reported that he said
'halt', and Pugh turned toward him."
At that point, according to Noah,

Francis got the impression that Pugh
had a gun. "He (Francis) felt
threatened and he fired," Noah said. He
added no weapon was, found in Pugh's
possession or near his body. However, a
pair of nailclippers "three or four in-
ches long," were found near Pugh,
Noah said.
"AT THIS point we're just waiting for
all of the evidence to be assembled,"
Noah said. "We are waiting for reports
from the Ann Arbor Police, the Ypsilan-
ti Police, the State Police, the crime
lab, and the autopsy protocol. Our of-
fice is looking into any possible
wrongdoing in this case. The matter
will be fully investigated - but we have
to have all the facts."
Francis, who was working under-
cover with the Washtenaw Area Nar-
cotics Team (WANT), has been
reassigned to other duties.
Noah said several persons were taken
into custody following the raid, but all
have since been released.
League to
oppose mall-
plan1s for
Ingalls. St.
(Continued from Page 1)
DURING THE DAY, she believes,
patients and visitors to the Dental
School, who normally use the short
term parking on Ingalls, would take
spaces used by faculty and employees.
In the evenings, when the various
auditoriums have performances, the
area would be very congested, sh
University Vice-President James
Brinkerhoff said, "There is no im-
mediate intent to convert (Ingalls Str-
teet into a mall). It's possible that the
plan could be changed, but I doubt
seriously that it would be." Brinkerhoff
said that the conversion was outlined
ina 1963 plan for central campus
development, and that the Michiga
League Board of Governors was a par
of the decision at that tine.
Although Lawson acknowledges t
plans for the mall will probably not
effected for some time, she believes'
you don't start (opposition) now, yo
won't be able to avert the proble
"I think that green space is great, bu
planning must be people-oriented,'
Lawson commented.

must buy it from your Travel Agent in the U.S. because it
can't be purchased in Europe. Of course we won't start
