Posted: Updated:

GREEN OAK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 46-year-old Howell man suspected of stabbing a person at a business in Washtenaw County fatally shot himself after police stopped him on an expressway.

The shooting led authorities to close northbound U.S. 23 for several hours Monday.

Green Oak Township police Chief Jason Pless tells WHMI-FM (http://bit.ly/1nFzw3q ) that his department's policy is not to identify people who kill themselves.

Huron Valley Ambulance spokeswoman Joyce Williams tells The Ann Arbor News that the man shot himself about 5 p.m. in the Livingston County community, about 12 miles north of Ann Arbor.

Washtenaw County sheriff's Sgt. Geoffrey Fox says the stabbing happened at Mike's Welding and Fabrication in Ypsilanti Township. WHMI says the 36-year-old Ypsilanti Township man was in stable condition Tuesday.
