Eaton County Sheriff's deputies responded to a likely drug-related shooting of a 28-year-old man at 8:34 p.m. on Sept. 13 at an apartment complex at Mall Drive West and Elmwood Road.
What started as a suspicious situation call changed when other citizen calls reported sounds of gunfire.
Deputies located the shooting victim who was transported by Delta Fire EMS to a local hospital and treated for non-life threatening injuries. Witnesses reported a male suspect fled the scene in a red or maroon SUV, possibly an older model Ford Explorer, that was last seen in the area of Arden and Willow Highway.
The initial investigation indicates the incident was probably drug related and not a random act, deputies said. Detectives are investigating the shooting and request that anyone with information contact Detective Rick Buxton at 517-323-8480.
