Man shouting religious beliefs leads to tense moments at Meijer

DAVISON TWP. — There were some tense moments at the Meijer store, 8089 Lapeer Rd., on April 16 at 2:45 p.m. when police were called to the store for a report of unknown trouble.

Police arrived to find people running from the store and, in some cases, hiding in the field behind the store after people reported a man with a gun and possibly a hostage inside the store.

Deputy Police Chief Gerald Harris said the caller was heard yelling there was a man in store with a gun and a hostage, causing multiple law enforcement agencies to be dispatched. Once on the scene, police quickly learned it had been a disorderly person who fled scene in a white mini-van.

Witnesses said the man had no weapon and there wasn’t a hostage. He reportedly stood at the front of the store yelling for shoppers to “repent” that everyone who did “would be saved” and he recited other Biblical quotes before exiting the store and leaving the premises.

Police are still investigating and there was no confirmation of a weapon and no other indications of anything but an expression of religious beliefs, but Harris said because of recent national incidents it nearly caused a panic.
