WYOMING, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Police have taken four people into custody and a standoff ensued after a man bleeding from a gunshot walked into a nearby pharmacy.

Wyoming Police were called to the Walgreens Pharmacy at 4425 S. Division just after 12:30 p.m. after 27-year-old man said he had been shot. He was taken to an area hospital and is listed in stable condition.

Newschannel 3's Mike Krafcik reported at the scene in Wyoming with how the standoff played out.

The victim is out of surgery, in stable condition and police don't have a suspect yet.

For several hours Wyoming Police officers surrounded a recording studio near 4447 S. Division, before four people of interest surrendered in dramatic fashion.

SWAT Officers surrounded a recording studio for hours and called for those holed up inside to come out.

At around 4 p.m. woman emerged and minutes later, a man crawled out with no shirt on and both gave themselves up to authorities.

Wyoming Police Chief Mark Easterly said, “We just want to talk to them, so we don't know what their involvement is, if any.”

Hours earlier, officers took two other men into custody. One of the men was apprehended after driving to the front of the building.

Brittany Salgado, a witness, said, “He got swarmed in on and taken away.”

While the four people aren't being charged, police say they may know what happened when just before noon, a 27-year-old man stumbled into a Walgreens Pharmacy on S. Division and 44th after being shot in the abdomen.

Easterly said, “He was taken to a local hospital. He's out of surgery now and is in stable condition.”

Police thought there might have been more people inside during the stand-off. A SWAT team from Grand Rapids Police Department entered the building after sending a robotic search device through the back door.

Officers entered, but no more suspects were found. A crime lab remained on scene and anyone with information is urged to call police.

Easterly said, “You're going to see a police presence, but not a heavy police presence.”

Police said none of the four people inside were hurt, no weapons were found at the scene and the investigation is still ongoing.

Daniel Dyer, a witness said, “I'm thankful that they came out unharmed.”

Police are asking anyone with information to call Wyoming Police or Silent Observer right away.
