BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- A suspect in a Battle Creek shooting has been arrested in Louisiana.

Battle Creek police responded to a shooting that took place in the 100-block of Greenwood on the afternoon of June 2nd.  Witnesses say a man pulled up in a car and began arguing with another man on the sidewalk, eventually pulling out a gun and shooting the victim twice in the legs before driving away in a dark red mid-sized car.

Charges were issued against 26-year-old Dawon Dupree Haymer, including assault with intent to murder and a list of gun charges.  The victim, 34-year-old Jonathon Mark Jones, was last listed in stable condition and is expected to recover.

On Wednesday, Haymer was found in Shreveport, Louisiana and was arrested by local authorities.  It is expected that he will be extradited to Battle Creek to face charges.
