WYOMING, Mich. (AP) - Western Michigan police say an officer and a man who opened fire on police are hospitalized with gunshot wounds.

Wyoming police Chief James Carmody tells WOOD-TV that the officers were responding to a domestic dispute in the Grand Rapids suburb Thursday afternoon when a man in his 30s shot one officer.

Carmody tells The Grand Rapids Press the shooter fled, firing as he ran through the neighborhood. The chief says officers returned fire, striking the suspect.

Carmody says he talked with the officer, who’s “doing well” at Mercy Health St. Mary’s.

The chief says the suspect was seriously injured, and Grand Rapids and state police are guarding him at a hospital.

The newspaper says one of the suspect’s shots entered a home and caused very minor injuries to a resident.
