Collins says the dealership called police about a problem with a customer about 2 p.m. Thursday. Collins says a man pulled a handgun and fired at the officers outside the dealership officers. Both officers were wearing protective vests.

Schools in the area were put on lockdown during the investigation.

Willoughby Hills is about 20 miles (32 kilometers) east of Cleveland.
