Here's What We Know About The Michigan Courthouse Shooting


Update 4:45 pm ET:

The shooter was on his way to jail when he grabbed a gun off a deputy and began firing, according to RT.

As the nation is still reeling from the police killings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile and an attack in Dallas that left five police officers dead, multiple people were reportedly shot at the Berrien County Courthouse in southwest Michigan.

This is very unsettling news in a country that's become all too familiar with gun violence and mass shootings. It's been almost exactly a month since the worst mass shooting in US history at a gay nightclub in Orlando, which claimed the lives of 49 people on June 12.

Details are still emerging, but here's what we know so far about the courthouse shooting in Michigan. This post will be updated as more information comes in.

At least three people were killed, according to the Berrien County sheriff, including two bailiffs and the shooter.

A police officer was also reportedly shot during the incident.

There's a large police presence in the area and the scene is secure, according to multiple reports. Police are investigating the situation.
