Suspect identified in Battle Creek shooting

BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek police have obtained warrants naming a suspect in a shooting that took place in the 100-block of Greenwood around 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

Witnesses say the alleged gunman pulled up in a car and began arguing with a man on the sidewalk, eventually pulling a gun and shooting the victim twice in the legs before driving away in a dark red midsized car.  Police are looking for 26-year-old Dawon Dupree Haymer, and say he should be considered armed and dangerous. The warrants charge him with assault with intent to murder and a list of gun charges.

The victim, 34-year-old Jonathon Mark Jones, has been listed in stable condition and is expected to recover.
