 STATEMENT TO THE MEDIA BY LARRY RUPPERT, VICE PRESIDENT, PROPERTY MANAGEMENT, RAMCO-GERSHENSON, INC., REGARDING SUMMIT PLACE MALL
 The following statement from Larry Ruppert of Ramco-Gershenson, Inc., was released today by Summit Place Mall:
 On Saturday, Feb. 29, at 10:36 p.m., one small section of the roof collapsed into the common area here at the Center (Summit Place Mall) in front of six to eight stores.
 An investigative team of experts is currently on site to try to determine the cause. This team includes architect Bill Beitz from James P. Ryan & Associates; structural engineer George Ehlert; and Ike Sheppard who has an extensive background in wood timber construction.
 According to architect Beitz, the sections of the mall which are closed at the present time, 160 feet south and 120 feet north of the Garden Court, are the only other two areas of the mall with wood construction. All other areas of the mall have structural steel framing.
 Structural engineer Ehlert is in the process of taking samples and is about 50 percent through with inspections of the wood beams.
 We have done everything possible to make certain this is an isolated incident, which is the reason why we have currently closed off the immediately adjacent section of the mall housing a total of 30 stores.
 We have complete confidence in the integrity of the newly expanded section of the mall, with some 120 shops and services that have remained open for business.
 We should know something further in the next 24-48 hours and will give periodic updates as soon as new information is available.
