Eight people are dead after a gunman in central Michigan shot seven people, including two children, before allegedly turning the gun on himself. Exact details aren’t yet clear, but police say 34-year-old Rodrick Shonte Dantzler killed seven people in two separate locations before he led police on a high-speed chase around Grand Rapids, where he shot at police cars and hurt two bystanders.  He then broke into a home and took two people hostage. Dantzler was in the process of surrendering when he shot himself in the head.
