Clinton Township — Nine hours after a man allegedly fired a rifle into an occupied vehicle near Clinton Township's Budd Park, prompting warnings to the public, a man was arrested.

Police alerted to the incident at about 6 p.m. found the round had hit a vehicle "occupied by a lone male."

Officers used both a helicopter and drone, police said, in a search for the shooter along with assistance from Michigan State Police, the Macomb County Sheriff's Office, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Secret Service.

At 3:10 a.m., police arrested a man.

Clinton River Road near Romeo Plank was closed for a time, reopening in the 4 a.m. hour. As of noon Wednesday, Budd Park was still closed as police searched for evidence.

At about midnight, police told the public via Facebook that the man was still at large and was considered to be armed and dangerous.

"We are doing everything possible to bring the situation to a peaceful resolution," read a post on the department's Facebook page. 

The suspect's age was not immediately available.
