Two police officers and a third person were injured during a shooting at a BMW dealership in a Cleveland suburb Thursday.
The two Willoughby Hills police officers who were shot are in stable condition, Police Chief Christopher Collins said at a press conference late Thursday.
The suspect, who has not been named, is also in stable condition, local news outlets reported.
The shooting happened around 2 p.m. ET at Classic BMW in Willoughby Hills, Ohio, according to local news reports.
The dealership was open for business by the evening. A receptionist who answered the phone referred Automotive News to the local police for details, saying the dealership had “no statement to make.” A phone message left for a Willoughby Hills police public information officer was not immediately returned.
Published reports said police received a call from a Classic BMW employee reporting there was a problematic man in the dealership. The man appeared to be under the influence, a report by the local News-Herald said.
When two officers responded to the call, the suspect drew his gun inside the dealership. The officers pulled out their guns, a report in Cleveland.com said. It is unclear who fired first and the shooting is still under investigation, the report said.
The officers, who were wearing bulletproof vests, and the person shot are expected to survive; no one else was hurt in the shooting, the Cleveland.com report said. The victims are being treated at local hospitals, it said.
Dealership employees said they had not seen the man before Thursday, the report said. Police are not releasing the identity of the officers or the third person who was hurt.
The report said the shooting is being investigated by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation.
