A man with a gun was shot and hurt by police Saturday night outside the Ford Wayne Stamping Plant, the City of Wayne Police Department said in a news release.
The man was not allowed to be on the property, and when asked to show his hands, he pulled out a weapon.
“When officers got there, they talked to the person outside an employee entrance,” the release said. “The suspect was told several times to show his hands, and each time he did, he pulled out a gun. When the suspect pointed his gun at the officers, they kept telling him to drop it. Six police officers were at the scene, and one of them fired his gun once and hit the suspect.”

A 911 call was made at 37500 Van Born Road just after 7 p.m., and Wayne police and deputies from the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office went there to help.
The news release said that after the shooting, police officers “immediately began to help” the man who was hurt. The man was taken to a local hospital by Wayne Fire Rescue. On Saturday, he was listed as being in critical condition. On Sunday, police did not say anything new about his condition.
No Further Information is Available
When the Detroit Free Press called police in Wayne on Sunday, they said they had nothing more to add to the news release and that all questions should be sent to the Michigan State Police.
Shannon Banner of the Michigan State Police told the Free Press on Sunday, “We don’t have anything to say except that Wayne Police have asked us to look into the officer-involved shooting.” “We are doing that, and when we are done, our report will be sent to the prosecutor.”
Kelli Felker, a spokeswoman for Ford, told the Free Press that the company is helping police with their investigation.
A person who knew about the situation said that the gunman was probably not a Ford worker.
