GENERIC: police lights

Authorities say a suspect has been arrested after one person was killed, another shot in Michigan's northwestern Lower Peninsula.

The Mason County sheriff's office posted on Facebook that a stretch of U.S. highway 31 on the border between Free Soil and Grant townships was closed Tuesday morning due to an "active shooter situation.”

Deputies now report that the shooting happened at a home in the 10000 block of N. US-31, outside of Ludington. The caller said the armed suspect was in the home, along with a dead man, and small children.

Officials were able to evacuate one wounded adult and two children; and at 8:25 a.m., an adult male surrendered and was taken into custody.

A man was found fatally shot inside the home. Another adult was treated for gunshot injuries but is expected to recover.

No names have been released.
