MONTEREY TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has been charged with murder in connection to a deadly shooting in Allegan County late Monday night.

Nolan Woodsworth was arraigned Thursday on a count of open murder, according to the Allegan County Sheriff’s Office.

The sheriff’s office said dispatchers were called shortly before midnight Monday for a report of a shooting at a house near the intersection of 130th Avenue and 30th Street in Monterey Township, north of Allegan.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they found a man, 35-year-old Cody Cline, lying in the driveway with a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Cline lived at the home where the shooting happened, deputies say.

Witnesses told authorities that the suspect was visiting the house, then shot Cline and drove away.

The suspect was later found in the Grand Rapids area and arrested. His car was found Tuesday morning after being crashed into a tree in the area of 134th Avenue and 24th Street, deputies say.
