BAY CITY, MI A Bay City man in an armed standoff with police after allegedly shooting one officer has taken to social media to justify his actions.

The suspect is 38-year-old Leroi D. Kocsis, said Bay City Public Safety Director Michael J. Cecchini and Kocsis' mother.

Kocsis at about 12:40 p.m. posted the following status on his Facebook page: "I love everybody n my daughter n corrupt police have forced my hand."

Cecchini has said the incident began shortly before noon Friday, Feb. 19, when officers attempted to serve a felony arrest warrant on Kocsis in the 600 block of North Sherman Street. Kocsis opened fire on officers, striking one, Cecchini said.

Kocsis then fled into a house, where he remained as of 1 p.m. Cecchini could not confirm if other people are in the house with him.

The wounded officer was taken to McLaren Bay Region hospital for treatment. Cecchini said the injuries appeared not to be life-threatening.

Kocsis in January was arraigned on two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a relation between the ages of 13 and 16. The charge is punishable by up to life imprisonment.

An affidavit contained in court records signed by a Bay City Department of Public Safety detective states that a 14-year-old girl alleged Kocsis had intercourse with her in July 2012.
