Shots Fired In Hotel Parking Lot

The Berrien County Sheriff’s Department is investigating several reports of shots being fired around 6:30 this morning in Benton Township. Lieutenant Steve Campbell tells WSJM News officers were called to the Cosmo Extended Stay motel on M-139, just north of I-94.

“Two people were detained, two firearms have been seized,” says Campbell. “The officers have been able to check the rooms and at this time there are no known injuries.”

Campbell says several 911 calls came in about shots being fired at the hotel, prompting a response by the sheriff’s department, Benton Township Police, Benton Harbor Public Safety and Michigan State Police. As yet, police don’t know what prompted the shooting. More information is expected to be released later in the day Friday.
