Police Seek Person of Interest In Lathrop Avenue Shooting
The Battle Creek police need your help in finding a person of interest in the May 10th shooting of a 17-year-old girl on Lathrop Street. The girl is ok, but charges are being sought against 26-year-old Kamren Lee Brown for assault with intent to murder.
The girl told police she had gone to the house in the 200 block of Lathrop Street for a cookout. She said there were several other people there too, and that a car drove past the house several times. Finally, someone from the car spoke with the 34-year-old man hosting the cookout. The car then left but returned. The host told everyone outside to go inside once the vehicle returned. The 17-year-old said she was shot as she tried going toward the house. Battle Creek police tell us the victim's injuries were non-life threatening.
Officers collected shell casings at the scene and later found and impounded the suspect’s vehicle.
