KALAMAZOO, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a police officer has been shot in a southern Michigan city.

Lisa Walterhouse, an employee at the plasma center in downtown Kalamazoo, tells the Kalamazoo Gazette that police responded Tuesday after a former employee entered the building and fired shots.

Police in nearby Portage said on Facebook that a Kalamazoo officer was shot and injured but that there's no additional risk to the public. No information has been released about the officer's condition.

No one at the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety was available to speak to The Associated Press.
