Police: 1 person injured after more than 100 shots fired during shooting
SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - An overnight shooting between two groups of people in Saginaw left one person injured, according to Michigan State Police.
Saginaw police officers and Michigan State Police troopers responded to the scene on Hamilton Street at Court Street about 1:10 a.m. on Friday, June 3.
One person was shot in the leg, and was taken to a local hospital by a personal vehicle, police said. The victim is in good condition.
More than 100 shell casings were found at the scene of the shooting. At this time, it’s unclear how many people were involved in the incident, police said.
MSP believes two different groups exchanged gunfire in this incident.
“It’s unfortunate I would rather that doesn’t happen,” said The Bread Guy Owner Mitch Delemeester.
This happened in an area that the city is working to transform and revitalize especially after the pandemic.
Delemeester hopes this incident will not deter people from visiting Old Town.
“Ultimately, I’m here because I believe that Saginaw has a lot of potential growth. And that was really what drew me into the area was that we could make a difference here,” Delemeester said.
Delemeester said incidents like this are out of his control so he will compromise and focus on what he can.
“I think is the best thing that we can do. A lot of it is out of our control. I just I can’t control you know what happened out there this morning. That’s really unfortunate. What we can control is just having the best atmosphere inside of our little building,” Delemeester said.
MSP said there were no witnesses, and the victim is being uncooperative.
