3 arrested following officer-involved shooting in Mattawan

MATTAWAN, MICH. - Authorities tell WZZM 13 that a Mattawan Police Department officer was involved in a shooting near the intersection of Main Street and W. McGIllen Avenue -- not far from area schools.

The shooting happened just after 8 a.m. after a traffic stop. MSP says the officer shot at the vehicle, injuring a female suspect. Two other suspects, another woman and a man, ran away from the area.

Nearby Mattawan schools were put on lockdown as a precautionary measure while authorities search for the remaining suspects.

The two were found around 9:30 a.m. and taken into custody. The lockdowns were lifted and MSP says there is no further threat to the community. 

It was not immediately clear what led up to the shooting.
