(KCEN) -- In Michigan a shootout yesterday left a suspect dead and one officer wounded.
Police say a 64-year-old man entered police headquarters in Southfield pointed a handgun at an officer behind the protective glass and pulled the trigger.
Luckily, the gun didn't fire.
Officers then ordered the gunman to drop the weapon, but he refused and pointed it at them instead.
Shots were exchanged and one officer was hit in the shoulder.
The police chief, Eric Hawkins, praised the actions of his officers.
Hawkins said, "We have no apparent motive at this time. My officers performed courageously under stressful conditions. They performed within policies, procedures and best practices. We regret the loss of life. We always try to resolve these incidents as nonviolently as we can; however, the use of force was unavoidable in this circumstance."
The injured officer is expected to make a full recovery.
