Local media suggests that three people may be dead at Berrien County Courthouse. Two of the deceased are court bailiffs, while the third is the shooter, according to an employee of the country persecutor’s office, speaking to the Detroit Free Press.
These numbers have not been confirmed by state police.
Preliminary reports suggest that the suspect was on his way to jail when he grabbed a gun from a deputy and opened fire.
After being placed on lockdown, the courthouse has been secured by state police according to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
