Day care middle hit by bullets in custody battle – The Oakland Press

Bullets struck a Southfield daycare center Monday morning when gunfire was fired outside a nearby apartment building during a custody swap and an argument, police said.

No injuries were reported in the incident.

Southfield police were transferred to the Sapphire Apartments at 16500 North Park Dr. called because shots had been reported there. Two laps went through a Childtime window near JL Hudson and Providence Drives, police said.

The shooting stems from an argument between the child’s father and the child’s mother’s friend, who was involved in a custody swap, police said. Shots were fired when one of the men in his vehicle followed the other man in his vehicle, the police said.

Lydia Cisaruk, Childtime’s communications director, made the following statement in response to the shooting: “Our staff put emergency protocols in place when they heard gunshots outside when a shot broke into the building and hit one of the classroom walls. Fortunately, neither children nor employees were injured. We sought protection on site and contacted the authorities, who arrived immediately. We have been told that a suspect is in custody. The situation had nothing to do with the school. We take every precaution to ensure that the school environment is safe for our children and staff. “

The investigation into the incident is currently ongoing, the police said. Anyone with information about this is asked to call the Southfield Police Department at 248-796-5500.
