UPDATE: Man Dies After Entering Police Station in Southfield and Opened Fire

Posted: Updated:

UPDATE: Southfield police say there is no known motive on an attack on their station.

64-year-old Harold Joseph Collins was killed in a shootout, after he entered a police station in the Detroit suburb and tried to open fire.

Police say the shooting happened Sunday afternoon.

The suspect reportedly entered the station's lobby and pointed a handgun at an officer, behind protective glass.

He pulled the trigger, but the gun did not fire.

The officer ordered him to drop the weapon, but the gunman refused.

Other officers then ordered the suspect to drop the gun and he pointed it at them.

Southfield Police Lieutenant Nick Loussia says the officers exchanged shots with the man, hitting him several times.

A 25-year-old officer was injured in the shootout, but is in stable condition.

His injuries are not life-threatening.

Police have not released his name.

A preliminary investigation reveals Collins was in poor health and a military veteran.
