Saginaw police say they're getting closer to finding a suspect in a shooting in the 1200 block of S. Hamilton this past Monday.
When officers arrived on the scene, they were notified that one house in that block had been shot at and hit by bullets. Witnesses also told officers who the shooter was and could positively identify him.
The shooter is a 20-year-old black man who police say is still on the run at this time. No one was shot or injured during the incident, and police didn't want to release his name.
Early Thursday morning the Saginaw Police and Michigan State Police Detectives with the Major Crimes Unit, along with the Emergency Services Teams, executed two search warrants regarding the case.
One search warrant was executed in the Bloomfield and Huntley neighborhood and the other was in the area of Covenant Hospital, both in the city of Saginaw. The suspect is still outstanding at this time.
Police stated in a news release that they "want our citizens to understand and know that if you tell us who is doing the crime we are going to use our resources to apprehend the parties involved. Your safety is our priority!"
