HOLLY (WWJ) – Authorities say a gunman who barricaded himself inside a mobile home, prompting an evacuation of the neighborhood, has given himself up and is now facing felony charges.

The situation unfolded around 5:30 a.m. Thursday at the Holly Village mobile home community along Grange Hall Road near North Holly Road in Holly.

“We received information about a man coming out onto his front porch with a firearm, twice,” Police Chief Mike Story told WWJ’s Laura Bonnell. “Prior to that, there was a boyfriend/girlfriend argument and she went outside and then couldn’t get back in and he came out on the porch with a firearm.”

The woman was able to escape before the man barricaded himself inside the mobile home.

As a SWAT team surrounded the man’s home, police evacuated neighbors from their homes and diverted school buses from the area to protect the community.

After several hours, the man finally gave himself up peacefully around 10 a.m. and was immediately taken into custody.

Story said the man is known to police, although he declined to elaborate.

No shots were fired during the incident and no injuries were reported.

The case is being forwarded to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office to determine charges.
