Teen dead after returning fire in shooting and robbery at his Canton home

CANTON, Ohio - A teen died after he fired back at three men who robbed and shot him in Canton, police said.

The 19-year-old victim, Michael A. Sibert, was shot twice during the robbery Friday, Dec. 13 at around 6 p.m. on Alan Page Drive. When police responded, Sibert was dead and another teen, who police later identified as a suspect, was suffering from life-threatening injuries from a gunshot to the face.
