BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (WOOD) — Murder charges have been issued in a Battle Creek shooting that left one man dead and two others injured.
Calhoun County District Court documents show that a count of open murder, three counts of assault with intent to commit murder and four counts of weapons offenses were filed Wednesday against David Edward Johnson.
The court documents did not list arrest or arraignment dates for Johnson, 44, of Battle Creek. He is not listed in the Calhoun County Jail’s online roster.
The shooting happened in the early hours of Jan. 27 at the intersection of S. Kendall Street and W. Dickman Road. Wendell C. Daniels, 23, of Battle Creek was killed. Two other men, ages 22 and 24, were injured. Authorities say they and a fourth man were all in one car and the shooter was believed to have been another.
Late last week, Battle Creek police said a 31-year-old Battle Creek man who was a person of interest in the case had been taken into custody on charges linked to a separate shooting. That person’s name was never released and his connection to the murder is unclear.
