GENERIC: Bay City Police badge

A man was shot Wednesday afternoon in a home on Bay City’s south side.

A 27-year-old Bay City man was found shot in a home just before 4 p.m., according Bay City Public Safety Officers.

The victim has non-life-threatening injuries and was taken to the nearby hospital, officers said.

The suspect, who was an acquaintance of the victim, ran from the home and was spotted later by a Bay County Sheriff’s Deputy.

24-year-old Leonel Maldonado from Saginaw was arrested.

He was arraigned in Bay County on charges of assault with intent to commit murder and felony firearm.

Crimestoppers of Saginaw County sent out an alert earlier this week asking for help finding Maldonado, who was a wanted fugitive.

He was wanted for assault with a dangerous weapon, domestic violence, flee and elude and resisting and obstructing.
