Gunman shot and killed himself after hourslong standoff in Groveland Township, MSP says

Michigan State Police said a man who ran into the woods with a gun was found with a single gunshot wound and was pronounced dead.

MSP spent several hours in negotiations with a man in the area of Grange Hall and Perryville Road in Groveland Township Thursday night after being called to a report of a car crashed into a ditch.

When police arrived, the man had run into the woods and police had the area surrounded. 

Unfortunately, as negotiations continued, they reported a single gunshot. A crew in an MSP helicopter saw the man on the ground and not moving.

He was taken to the hospital where he was pronounced dead from a self-inflicted gunshot.

His name has not been released.
