Battle Creek Police are looking for the suspect in a shooting early Saturday Morning at a Liberty Mart in Post Addition.
The shooting happened at about 4:30 a.m. at the Liberty Mart at 240 Cliff St. Police responded at about 10:30 a.m. when a 39-year-old man arrived at a local hospital for medical treatment for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to the thigh.
Police said the suspect vehicle pulled into the Liberty Mart parking lot. The victim walked to the vehicle, reportedly to ask for money. As he got close to the vehicle, a man in the passenger-side backseat shot at the victim, and a round hit the victim in the thigh. As the victim walked away, the suspect fired additional rounds.
A woman driving the car had gone into the Liberty Mart while this took place. Afterward, she drove the car away from the store. A family member took the victim to the hospital later that morning.
Police are looking for the suspect, described as a black man in his 30s, with a medium build. The gun is a black, semi-automatic handgun.
The suspect vehicle is a dark green, four-door, 2000-2007 Chevrolet Impala in poor condition.
