Woman grazed as shots fired at Kalamazoo apartments

Kalamazoo and Battle Creek

KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — One person sustained a minor injury in a shooting and two people were arrested for unrelated crimes at a Kalamazoo apartment complex Friday night.

Police said officers responded to the 1300 block of Fox Ridge Drive around 9 p.m. regarding a group of individuals causing a disturbance.

When officers arrived to the apartment building, they heard four or five gunshots and found a crowd in the hallway.

Police found the victim, a 25-year-old Kalamazoo woman, with a minor graze to her abdomen area in an apartment nearby. She was treated on the scene and released and is expected to be OK.

Authorities got a tip that the shooter ran into an adjacent apartment, so the Kalamazoo Metro SWAT team was called in. They searched the apartment but didn’t find a suspect.

Three guns and methamphetamine were recovered from the apartment where the victim was located.

Two Kalamazoo men, ages 21 and 24, were arrested at apartment on outstanding warrants.

Police will continue to investigate this incident.

KDPS is requesting anyone with any information to call 269.488.8911, the Criminal Investigation Division at 269.337.8139, or Silent Observer at 269.343.2100.
