The fatal shooting happened on Friday, Dec. 22 at 7:30 p.m. on Hay Road in Hay Township. The sheriff said three men started fighting in the middle of the road outside the home when one man was shot. 

Tre Alan Friend, 21, of Beaverton, has been charged with open murder, carrying a concealed weapon, and felony firearm.

Investigators said Friend ran to a Jeep and grabbed a loaded gun before shooting and killing Blake VanSnepson.

Friend was arraigned on Tuesday, Dec. 26. His bond was set at $1 million.

Dominick Dale Harmon, 24, of Gladwin, has been charged with obstruction/lying to a peace officer during the investigation of a murder. His bond was set at $5,000.

The victim’s family released a statement to our affiliates at 9 & 10 News:

“We ask that all of our friends, family, and the public pray for the shooter and his family who must be scared and hurting at this time. We also ask that no one respond viciously or act out in a negative way towards him or his family whether in person, online, or via social forums. Set a Christ-like example, so that Blake’s memory rises above all of this.”

The investigation is still ongoing.
