BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — A 14-year-old Battle Creek boy was arrested and a 13-year-old turned himself in Sunday after the death of a Battle Creek Central student on Friday.
The two teenagers are being held in the Calhoun County Youth Center in connection to the death of 17-year-old Jack Snyder, the city of Battle Creek said in a release. They’re both expected to be in court Tuesday.
The 13-year-old’s parent came with him to the police department Sunday, city officials say.
The Battle Creek Police Department said detectives also found a gun they believe was involved in Snyder’s death. Confirmation is pending forensic analysis.
Snyder was found next to his car around 12:10 a.m. in the area of Battle Creek Avenue and Capital Avenue, the Battle Creek Police Department said. EMTs tried to help him but he died at the scene.
The two teenagers were seen in Snyder’s car before gunshots were heard in the area, officials say.
Anyone in the area who may have surveillance images from between 11:30 p.m. Thursday and 1 a.m. Friday is asked to reach out to police. Anyone with information about what happened is asked to call BCPD at 269.781.0911 or Silent Observer at 269.964.3888.
