Police report that a South Lake High School student is allegedly being harassed by his former girlfriend's boyfriend. The victim told police that the first incident of harassment was when the suspect, described as a black male in his early 20s, reportedly followed the male victim in his vehicle at around 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 25 to a location at Eight Mile Road and Harper.
It was at that time that two other cars occupied by unknown males pulled up and got out of their cars brandishing unknown firearms, according to police. The men then fled the area, the report states.
The second incident of harassment was reported the following day when the suspect arrived at South Lake High School. The suspect was reportedly kicked out of the school, and witnesses took the man's license plate number and vehicle description for police. The vehicle was registered to a resident of Clinton Township, police state. An investigation is ongoing.

No injuries were reported following what St. Clair Shores police are calling a drive-by shooting at Lake Shore High School last week. Detective Lt. Michael Walleman said a still-unknown suspect fired four shots at the front of the high school located at 22980 13 Mile Road at around 11:49 p.m. Oct. 30 - Devil's Night. Walleman said three custodians working inside heard the shots and contacted police. No
vehicle and no suspects were observed around the school before or after the incident, police report.
Walleman said that at this time, the crime is considered a drive-by shooting and destruction of property.
"We don't know if the intent was there or not to hurt somebody," Walleman said.
Nobody else was inside the building at the time of the shooting, and the custodians working were not hurt.
"This could have been considered a homicide … they were standing close enough that they heard the four shots fired," Walleman said.
Two of the bullets passed through and damaged two large front windows, while a third bullet damaged a window jamb and the fourth bullet a front door jamb, Walleman said.
"We recovered some of the spent rounds inside the school and we believe a .45-caliber or a .40-caliber handgun was used," he said.
An investigation into the crime is ongoing inside and outside the school, Walleman said. Interviews are being conducted and police are hoping school surveillance cameras recorded the incident, he said.
Lake Shore Public Schools Superintendent Brian Annable said on Oct. 31 that the windows have been boarded up pending repairs, and the entire district will immediately be notified of the incident through a letter, "because this is a community issue," he said, adding that Oct. 31 was a half-day of classes for Lake Shore students.
Annable said he is vexed by the incident and hopes justice is served to those responsible.
"When this type of thing happens the first thing you want to know is if anybody was hurt, and thankfully no one was hurt," said Annable, who added that an incident such as this has never occurred in the district before. "Then you ask, 'Why? Why do people do this type of thing?' But I don't have an answer."
Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Lake Shore Public Schools Superintendent Brian Annable at (586) 285-8480 or the St. Clair Shores Police Department at (586) 445-5305.
"We're all very concerned and we're not taking this lightly," Annable said.
