Battle Creek Authorities Investigating Gunfight Early Saturday
A shootout between two different parties took place in Battle Creek early Saturday morning.
The Battle Creek Enquirer says that Battle Creek Police Officers were called to the first block of South McKinley Ave. near Capital Ave. around 4am Saturday, after a witness said three men had been standing in a yard when a car pulled up and began shooting at them. The men in the yard returned fire, before the vehicle left.
The BCPD didn’t find anyone who had been injured, but a vehicle had been struck several times; they found at least six shell casings. Police were unable to find any information regarding people seeking medical assistance for injuries.
Authorities say they don’t know the identities of the people involved, but they are continuing to investigate.
This is the latest shooting to strike Battle Creek in 2019; earlier this month, a man died from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after police say he shot his wife in the leg. In late May, a man was killed and two were injured after they were shot in their vehicle.
