Taylor City Hall has been closed for the weekend after a incident involving a gunman took place outside the building in the Cameron Priebe Plaza this morning. The plaza is located directly in front of the police department.
A man with a gun stood alone in the plaza for close to an hour while Taylor Police surrounded the area and evacuated surrounding buildings. The man eventually gave up his gun and surrendered to police. There appeared to be no gunfire or injuries.
"Our police officers did an excellent job apprehending the man without incident," Mayor Rick Sollars said. "We have sent all of our municipal building employees home for the day and normal operations will resume on Monday."
