Suspicious shooting death under investigation


KALAMAZOO TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- Crime Scene Investigators from the City and County of Kalamazoo spent Thursday night pouring over a residence in the Sherwood Forest Mobile Home Park off Olmstead Road in Kalamazoo Township, near the County Fair Grounds..

9-1-1 dispatchers got a call at about 3:30 p.m. from a person who had heard that there might be a body there from another person and relayed it to a dispatcher.

Township officers and an EMS crew were sent to do a welfare check at the address and found the body of a male who had obviously been shot, and was already dead.

Chief Tim Bourgeois says they obtained a warrant and forensic crews went to work. He says they have not established the identity of the victim, or how long the body may have been there.

Bourgeois says they have interviewed the person who made the 9-1-1 call. That person denied having any direct knowledge about the shooting.

It’s not clear if they know who that person’s source was, and whether they have been interviewed.
