You're like, 'I'm in West Bloomfield,'" said Lori Sellman. 'It's crazy, it's like you're in a movie. You don't expect something like this and it's very sad. We feel very badly for the police officer that was shot and I feel badly for the family that's going through this."

The residents are being held away from their homes until the situation has been resolved.
