Man killed was school board member

HARRISON — A man fatally shot in Clare County has been identified as a Harrison school board member who also drove buses and previously served as the district's transportation director.

Floyd Dennis was found dead at his home Friday, about 12 miles southwest of Harrison. The Morning Sun reported that a 32-year-old woman was in custody. She could appear in court Tuesday.

The 68-year-old Dennis joined the Harrison school board in 2008, but his service to the district is much longer. Superintendent Tom House calls him a "valuable member of the school community," 100 miles north of Lansing.

Clare County authorities so far aren't releasing many details about the investigation.
