So scary. Less than a week after five police officers were murdered during a Dallas Black Lives Matter protest, CNN now reports a police officer was shot outside a Michigan courthouse on July 11. Plus, at least three people, including the shooter, are now dead. Find out all the details here.
At least three people are reportedly dead after a tragic shooting outside a Michigan courthouse in Berrien County, a new report claims. Two court employees were allegedly killed, and a police officer was shot in the town of St. Joseph on July 11.
Following the shooting, Governor Rick Snyder tweeted, “MSP has secured the scene at the Berrien County courthouse and started its investigation into the shooting that occurred this afternoon. Please join me in praying for those affected. We will share more information here from MSP as it becomes available.”
The shooter, who has yet to be identified, was also killed.
This story is developing, so keep checking back for more details. And this, of course, comes just days after the bloody shooting at a Dallas protest, which left five police officers dead. The Black Lives Matter protest was inspired by the recent officer-related deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling.
Our thoughts go out to those affected by this senseless tragedy. Our hearts break for them.
