Standoff with gunman on I-75 in Monroe County ends peacefully
Aug 10 2017 by Desiree Burns
Michigan State Police have taken into custody a gunman who locked himself in a auto on Interstate 75 near Luna Pier Road, officials said. They negotiated with him for several hours.
Chopper 7 was over the scene this morning which showed almost a dozen Michigan State Police vehicles and a SWAT truck on scene. Police shut down a stretch of northbound I-75, too, as a safety precaution. They did a welfare check and found him in a auto in Pontiac.
This all started around 2:30 a.m. when Oakland County Sheriff's Deputies received a call about a suicidal man.
The man was streaming the incident on Facebook Live.

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 May Have A Pressure-Sensitive Display
Beyond the release date for this variant, one remaining question is whether or not this will spread outside of eastern Europe. Currently, the tech is used in the Galaxy S8 but is limited to a small area where the Home button usually is positioned.
State police say that during the chase the man used Facebook live to make threats toward officers and at least one gun was recovered.
The suspect vehicle was eventually located on I-75 in Monroe County, where police resumed the pursuit. Police are asking anyone to avoid the area.
Southbound I-75 at South Otter Creek Road, exit 9, and northbound I -75 at Luna Pier Road, exit 6, were both closed about 5:35 a.m. Thursday, Aug. 10 because of the incident. Michigan State Police vehicles joined the chase at Gibraltar Road and continued south into Monroe County.
Right now, Michigan State Police say the driver is seeking a suicide by cop and the freeway remains closed.
