DEARBORN, Mich. – Police are on the scene of a barricaded gunman after responding to what’s being called an “active shooting scene” at a hotel in Downtown Dearborn on Thursday afternoon.
Dearborn police said they were engaged with a shooter at the Hampton Inn hotel at Michigan Avenue and near Military Street. Officers were called to the scene just after 1 p.m., and evacuated the hotel upon arrival.
Dearborn police said the shooter is not in custody but is “contained,” and said there was at least one victim that was transported to a local hospital. It appears the shooter is on the third floor of the hotel. Police said they are currently negotiating with the suspect. Police said they believe the shooter is armed with a long gun.
Dearborn police said the shooting stems from a dispute over money with hotel staff.
