Warren students run for cover after man fires gun in high school parking lot

Police believe shooter is 18-22 years old

WARREN, Mich. – It was dismissal time at Michigan Collegiate High School on Monday, and dozens of students were outside waiting to catch the bus when a man pulled out a semiautomatic weapon and started firing in the air.

At least six shots were fired. Luckily, none of those shots hit any of the students or staff.

Warren police had a squad nearby that arrived within one minute after being called. It was a chaotic scene as kids ran for cover.

One of the students recorded the shooting on his phone and sent it to another news outlet.

Police say the man seen firing the gun was not a student at the school, but rather he showed up with some students who had been suspended earlier on Monday, June 5, looking to settle some scores.

“Looking at the video and the information we gathered, it sounds like it was a planned after-school fight,” said police Captain Charles Rushton.

Surveillance video showed the group of individuals parking south of the school in two cars, and then walking over. Police are looking for an older dark red Chevy Impala and a dark blue/black Ford Focus.

Authorities believe the shooter is between 18-22 years old. Police are actively looking for those involved, as well as the firearm.
