SALEM TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A Byron Center man was shot at a northern Allegan County home early Saturday, authorities say.
Around 3:20 a.m., Allegan County sheriff’s deputies were called to a home in Salem Township, west of Dorr, according a Saturday release.
One man had opened fire on another, hitting him the “lower extremities,” according to the sheriff’s office. Deputies say their initial investigation shows that the shooting “resulted from an ongoing domestic related civil dispute.”
The man who was shot, a 24-year-old from Byron Center, got away from the home where the shooting happened and waited for emergency responders at a another residence.
He was taken to Metro Hospital with serious injuries. He was listed in stable condition Saturday afternoon.
The suspect, a 23-year-old Salem Township man whose name is being withheld pending arraignment, is being held in the Allegan County Jail on an attempted homicide charge.
