Two people are in the hospital following a dispute early Saturday morning that included shots being fired, Ann Arbor Police said.
Around 1:25 a.m. a man who was bleeding and carrying a handgun showed up at an apartment building in the 700 block of Miller Avenue, police said.
Police received calls reporting shots being fired on the first and fourth floor of the building. As officers arrived on scene, they heard a gunshot and went into the building.
At a fourth-floor apartment - where they had responded a week earlier for an assault - they saw blood outside, a 9 millimeter shell, the door kicked in and a bullet hole in the door.
Police said the suspect had entered the apartment and threatened his ex-girlfriend, who lives there, and her new boyfriend. As the new boyfriend climbed out a window and attempted to use a fire escape to flee the building, he fell at least three stories to the ground. He was taken to the hospital with "substantial injuries," police said.
The suspect in the shooting was apprehended and also taken to the hospital with injuries suffered before the incident.
No further details were released Saturday morning.
