CARLTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man is in custody after he fired a shot and then barricaded himself inside a RV at a campground near Hastings Monday, police say.
It happened around 4 p.m. at the Welcome Woods Campground, located on Welcome Road off of N Broadway in Carlton Township.
A man was with his girlfriend at the campground. There was a “domestic altercation” and the man threatened to kill people at that campground, Michigan State Police said in a release. They say he fired his gun once.
The woman was able to get away safely and he then went into their RV, MSP said.
Troopers say once they arrived, he refused to leave. Police established a perimeter and after a short time he surrendered without incident.
MSP identified the 24-year-old from Battle Creek on Tuesday as Trevor Dean Leiter. Police say he has been charged with three counts of felonious assault.
No one was injured. Police say there was no immediate threat to other campers and residents nearby.
