Police said they received reports of a man with a gun in the area Tuesday evening. They had been searching the area with a helicopter and drones.

"We sent in a drone. We had a chopper come over, and we were doing small increments of things because we didn't want someone to rush down there and have a bad experience," said Cpt. Bruce Wade, of the Clinton Township police.

The man was found passed out in the woods.

The park remained shut down Wednesday morning.
