A local teenager is accused of shooting a man in broad daylight.

Saginaw Police responded on Tuesday, May 23 to the area of Throop Street and Oakley Street at about 2:20 p.m. after a 911 call reporting a shooting.

Shortly after the first 911 call, dispatchers received a second call about a gunshot victim lying face down on the steps of a home on Bond Street.

When officers arrived on scene they found the victim, a 19-year-old man from Saginaw, with a gunshot wound to his backside.

The man was taken to a local hospital for treatment. Police said his injuries were not life-threatening.

John Whitley, 17, now faces nine felony charges in the shooting.

He’s charged with three counts of assault with intent to murder, four counts of felony firearm, one count of conspiracy to murder (pre-meditated), and one count of carrying a deadly weapon with unlawful intent.

K-9 units were brought to the area following the shooting. They tracked from where the victim was found to a nearby home where Whitley was arrested.
