(9/27/2017) - A shooting incident Wednesday morning led to lockdowns at most Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe facilities, including the Saginaw Chippewa Academy and the Tribal Operations Facility.

The shooting incident was reported around 7:30 a.m. in the area of Baseline and Loomis roads northeast of Mount Pleasant, according to posts on the tribe's Facebook page. A woman was shot inside a home and transported to an area hospital, but her condition was not known.

Police were still in the area searching for possible suspects at noon.

A press release from the Midland County Sheriff's Office says authorities have a heavy presence in the area along the Midland-Isabella county line south of M-20. Residents in the area are asked to lock their doors and report any suspicious people.

Two Mid-Michigan Medical Center campuses remained on lockdown at noon as a precaution.

In the hour after the shooting was reported, the Saginaw Chippewa tribe announced full lockdowns at most of its facilities as a precaution while the investigation continued. An all clear for all facilities came around 10:45 a.m. and they resumed normal operations.
