Local television stations in MI are reporting that at least three people are dead in a shooting at the courthouse in Berrien County, CNN reports.

A prisoner was being moved at western MI courthouse when he disarmed an officer and shot and killed two bailiffs Monday before officers killed the gunman, a sheriff said. The other person dead is the shooter, the employee said.

"We have the MSP Crime Lab coming down to process the scene", Bailey said.

Multiple agencies have responded to the courthouse, and victims have been transported to the Lakeland Hospital in St. Joseph.

"Our hearts are torn apart", Bailey said. They were our colleagues.

"Please join me in praying for those affected", he said.

Bailey said the shooting happened about 2:25 p.m. when a "disturbance" occurred on the third floor of the courthouse in downtown St. Joseph, Mich.

The inmate disarmed one of the officers, Bailey said.
