Three people are dead and a fourth in a critical condition in hospital after another fatal shooting in the US.
The incident began at about 2.25pm when an unidentified man opened fire on the third floor of Michigan’s Berrien County Courthouse.
“The person had shot two bailiffs, they're both deceased, and shot a deputy sheriff who is at the hospital right now being treated in an emergency room,” Berrien County Sheriff Paul Bailey confirmed at a press conference.
The deputy sheriff is believed to be in a critical condition at Lakeland Regional Hospital and it is unsure whether he will survive.
Bailey said “several civilians” were also injured and taken to hospital but are all in a stable condition.
The gunman was subsequently shot and killed by police.
“We're asking people to pray for the families of the deceased,” Bailey said.
