BATH TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Police say a gun and backpack were apparently taken from a man who was shot and killed earlier this month while hunting deer in mid-Michigan.

The Bath Township Police Department says 68-year-old Chong Yang of Lansing was pronounced dead at the scene after he was found after 10 p.m. Nov. 16 northwest of Lansing in Clinton County.

Officer Avery Lyon tells the Lansing State Journal for a Friday story that Yang’s backpack and firearm were missing when officers arrived. Police had previously said personal belongings were taken.

Police say Yang was deer hunting on state-owned property where hunting is permitted when he was shot. He was wearing hunter’s orange clothing at the time.

Tips are being sought from the public. Police have said they have no suspects in the shooting.
