Gunman opens fire on city from downtown home
March 31, 1982 — A lone gunman, who barricaded himself in a downtown house and opened fire onto First Street with a .22-caliber rifle, was apprehended by the Ann Arbor Police Department late last night after an exchange of fire with a police sniper.
The 26-year-old man first began firing from the house at 314 N. First St. onto the 300-block of the street at 7 p.m.
The police officer who first arrived at the scene was pinned down by fire while other officers and sheriff’s deputies arrived and surrounded the house, police said.
After a three-and-a-half hour standoff with police, the man again opened fire, this time on a police sniper stationed on the roof of a house next door. The officer returned fire, splintering the windowsill from where the man was shooting and injuring the man’s face.
