A Michigan shooting suspect was fatally shot Tuesday after he sought to "ambush" law enforcement officers at a plasma donation center, authorities said, reports Fox News.

Officers were called to the scene around 11:29 a.m. following a report of a shooting at the Biomat Center in Kalamazoo, MI, authorities said in a news release on Twitter. The armed suspect—who was believed to be a Biomat Center employee—was found "standing just inside the business" when the first two officers arrived, according to law enforcement.

He allegedly began shooting after they entered, prompting the officers to fire back, officials said. One officer was shot in the torso and "was saved by his bullet proof vest," according to the news release. "The other officer continued to engage with the suspect, striking him multiple times, until other officers arrived." The suspect died.

Preliminary information suggested that the unidentified suspect went to the plasma donation center "with the intent to draw officers to the scene and then ambush them upon entry," according to officials.
