Young Man Killed In Battle Creek Shooting Wednesday
The Battle Creek Police Department is now investigating a fatal shooting that took place late Wednesday night.
The BCPD says that they were called to Rambling Ln. on Battle Creek’s south side just before 11pm Wednesday, to find a 22-year-old man dead from a gunshot wound. The investigation is still in the preliminary stages, but police say it appears the victim had been inside his residence with a roommate and another friend, when a fourth person entered and fatally shot him with his own gun before fleeing.
The suspect is described as a black man in his late 20's to early 30's, wearing a dark Nike hoodie. Police say that he left the scene on foot, and that a k-9 track was unsuccessful. This is the third gun related crime on Battle Creek’s south side in the past four days, and the second at the Arbors of Battle Creek.
If you have any tips, the BCPD asks that you let them know immediately, either directly or by calling Silent Observer.
