A gunman shot three people at a suburban Detroit office building Monday morning, police said.

The victims’ conditions weren’t immediately known, and officers were searching the building for the shooter, said Troy police Lt. Gerry Scherlinck.

Witnesses told Detroit broadcast stations that the shooter was a former employee of an accounting firm inside the building.

The 170,000-square-foot building houses a number of businesses, including law offices, a State Farm insurance office and C&G Accounting, where the shooting was believed to have occurred. Police at first told workers to stay in their offices but a short time later evacuated the building.

Police in bulletproof vests and with guns could be seen going into the building, and people from inside could later be seen walking quickly out through a parking lot.

The office building is about 15 miles north of Detroit.
