None injured as man opens fire in Huron Twp.; multiple weapons found

- Dozens of workers are evacuated from a Huron Township business as a gunman opens fire. 
    
Everyone is safe tonight - but police are still trying to figure out what happened. Police lined Huron River Drive and business next to Quality Pipe Wednesday afternoon.

"There was a shooter that was shooting outside the window, shooting out into the parking lot," said Everett Robbins, director of public safety, Huron Township.

Roughly 60 employees were inside Quality Pipe at the time of the incident which happened at 2 p.m.

"They pulled us out of the building and said there was a shooting and the next thing I know, I'm here," said Jeff Coleman, Quality Pipe employee.

Everyone inside was safe with no reports of any injuries - and that's when police moved in. 

"Our response from the (Downriver) SWAT team flushed that person out," Robbins said.

A person of interest matching the description from the 911 call. 

"A white man, sandy blonde hair, wearing a blue shirt - that's what we got," Robbins said. "Some other interviews and things led us to this person of interest."

As to what the alleged shooting was all about, that remains a mystery. 

"There is no reason to believe that anyone inside was a target," Robbins said. "There was nobody inside who was shot. He had the opportunity to shoot several people if the shooter had that intention and that didn't happen."
  
Police said that after the threat was over they went inside the building and found multiple weapons inside. They are now in the process of testing those weapons to see which one was fired.

The location of where the shots were coming from also leaves more questions than answers.  A second story window into a grassy part of the parking lot. 

"Upstairs is off limits, that's just for the owner," said Coleman. "So I have no idea about anything like that."

Although police said is too soon to confirm if the alleged shooter worked at Quality Pipe. They did tell us there was no reports of any intruders and no signs of a break in. 
  
Business is expected to resume as normal on Thursday.
