When they arrived, witnesses told police a man had a gun and entered a condominium building.
Authorities say a woman who initially called police told them that the man from Mt. Clemens brandished a gun and threatened to shoot her after she attempted to speak with him about his dog.
The man came out of the building and began shooting at deputies, authorities say. He then went back into the building and deputies set up a perimeter.
He later fired more shots at deputies, hitting an unoccupied squad car.
Authorities say one deputy fired back, striking the man.
