Man dead after standoff in Brighton Meijer parking lot
BRIGHTON, Mich. (FOX 2) - A man is dead after a standoff at a Brighton Meijer parking lot on Sunday.
The standoff started this afternoon at the Meijer at 8650 W Grand River Ave, near I-96.
According to officials, officers were in the area when they spotted a U-Haul that was reported stolen out of Roseville.
Officers made contact with an armed man inside a trailer near the U-Haul, but the man refused to come out. He eventually barricaded himself with a woman, police said. The man also had a serious felony warrant that involved a weapon.
"Due to the nature of the adult male’s warrants and again out of an abundance of safety, the Livingston Regional SWAT and Negotiator teams responded to the scene. Once on scene, several more attempts were made to establish communications with the adult male. No communication was able to be established," police said in a news release.
After several hours, the standoff ended with the man dead and the woman uninjured. Police say the man took his own life.
"During the incident, there were no children involved," police said in a news release. "Also, there were no reported injuries to Officers on scene, citizens, and at no point were shots fired by police or at police."
Police did not release details on his relationship with the woman.
