School closures

Parents within the Grosse Pointe Public School System are angry about the district's decision to close two elementary schools on opposite ends of the area. The decision comes after months of heated debate, the formation of a blue-ribbon commission and a lengthy study.

Hostage suspect

A 32-year-old man accused of holding his girlfriend hostage at gunpoint for hours overnight has turned himself in to Highland Park police, officials said. The incident happened around midnight at a home on East Grand Street near John R Road and the Davison Freeway. Police said the 31-year-old woman is going to be OK.
