Multi Department Response In Albion For Gun Threat
Albion Public Safety was contacted at approximately 4:30 p.m. on Friday and was advised of a subject who had threatened someone with a gun in the 600 block of Cherry St. Albion Department of Public Safety officers responded and attempted to make contact with the subject, but were unsuccessful. The suspect refused to leave the home.
A warrant was obtained for the residence and the Battle Creek Police Department Emergency Response Team was called to assist.

A handgun was recovered in the house. Two flash bangs were used during the incident outside the house as a diversion.
