22. The guy was a veteran with throat cancer

Police on Monday identified the 64-year-old Southfield man who walked into the department building Sunday and began shooting, hitting an officer before being killed by return fire.

The man identified as Harold Joseph Collins had no known motive, criminal history but was in "poor health," Southfield police said Monday. Collins used a .380-caliber handgun and was a military veteran, police added.

"Based on the behavior of this individual, it is my opinion, and the opinion of in investigating officers, that this person was struggling with some very serious internal issues," Southfield Police Chief Eric Hawkins said Monday at a press conference.

Collins' family said Monday that he had suffered for years from throat cancer and had been "very sick."
