The Battle Creek police department responded to the 600 block of Linwood Ave on a report of a double shooting late in the day on Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015.

 

Two men from the Grand Rapids area came to the 600 block of Linwood Ave to possibly buy a vehicle. Once they arrived at the location, the possible vehicle buyers were assaulted by three men who were attempting to rob them.

 

One of the men being assaulted was armed with a handgun and fired two shots. These two shots struck two of the three suspects involved in the attempted robbery.

 

All three of the suspects fled the area on foot. BCPD ended up making contact with the two wounded suspects and both were transported to Bronson Hospital in Kalamazoo for treatment. These injuries are thought not to be life threatening at this time.
