KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — A man was formally charged Friday with shooting and killing another man in Kalamazoo early Wednesday.
Gabreon Wells-Lindsey, 22, was arraigned on charges of open murder, carrying a concealed weapon and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony in the death of 19-year-old Alex Johnson.
Johnson was shot shortly before 1:30 a.m. Wednesday at Hidden Hills Apartments off Emajean Street, north of Michigan Avenue.
Court records show officers responding to a report of shots fired found Johnson in one of the apartments with a gunshot wound to the chest. Johnson was rushed to the hospital, where he died.
Police said witnesses identified Wells-Lindsey as the shooter, saying the pair had a longstanding dispute. A detective testified Wells-Lindsey fired three shots at Johnson, hitting him once.
Another bullet hit a second victim, injuring that person, court records show.
Police found the suspect late Wednesday morning and arrested him.
A judge denied bond for Wells-Lindsey Friday.
