Barricaded gunman in Highland Park ends with one person taken into custody

Police say nobody has been injured

HIGHLAND PARK, Mich. – Police said a gunman that barricaded himself inside a home in Highland Park was taken into custody early Wednesday morning.

Officials said there weren't any injuries, and police have not returned fire. 

Police said the house is on Hamilton Avenue, just north of the Davison Freeway.

Highland Park police officers had guns drawn and trained on the house.

The man had fired his weapon several times out the window, and some nearby homes have been evacuated, police said.

"Those that we could evacuate, we've evacuated, but we're urging somebody who might be watching this program to shelter in place until we declare the area safe," Highland Park police Chief Chester Logan said. "Right now, it is a volatile situation. Although it's quiet, we've got a person that's already fired shots. We don't know if he might do it again, so we're asking people to shelter in place."

Residents in the area of Hamilton Avenue and the Davison Freeway were asked to shelter in place until police say the scene is clear.
