ROYAL OAK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan State Police are investigating a police situation overnight in Royal Oak Township.

They followed a blood trail from the car to the house in the area, which had a strong odor of marijuana.

The investigation is continuing to determine exactly what occurred and the relationship between the vehicle and house, as well as the connection of the marijuana to the incident.
