Three people are dead and several are injured after a shooting at a courthouse in Michigan. A report from WZZM says the incident took place when a man on his way to jail grabbed a gun from a policeman and opened fire.

Two of the people dead are court bailiffs. The other person dead is the shooter, the employee said.

Berrien County Sheriff Paul Bailey in a news conference said those injured were taken to Lakeland Regional Medical Center in St. Joseph for treatment. “Brave officers” took down the shooter, adding the suspect was an in-custody inmate…

A Berrien County Commissioner told WZZM’s ABC affiliate WBND reporter Vahid Sadrzadeh on scene that a man who was on his way to jail took a gun off a deputy and started opening fire.

A deputy sheriff was shot in the arm and was taken to the hospital. WSBT reports civilians were also injured and are being treated at the hospital.
