A suspect who police say shot another man during a fight at a local liquor store has been arrested and charged. 

The shooting happened about 6 p.m. on July 4 at Liquore Basket located at 3581 Dixie Highway.

Police said a fight inside spilled out of the store and ended with a 26-year-old man being shot. The victim was taken to the hospital and is still recovering from his injuries, authorities said. 

Officers were looking for a white 2009-2012 Lincoln MKS in connection with the crime and an identified person of interest that was caught on surveillance video. The man was wearing a white shirt and black pants and had two young children with him.

On Friday, Aug. 11, police announced charges against 25-year-old Bruce Arnett Burton, Jr. He was arraigned on multiple felony charges including assault with intent to murder. 

Burton was located in Tennessee by the Flint fugitive team. He was extradited back to Michigan where he awaits trial.
