KALAMAZOO, Mich. (WOOD) — One person has been charged and a second suspect is still on the run following a shooting in Kalamazoo on Tuesday.

The shooting happened around 11:45 a.m. at a gas station at the intersection of S. Burdick Street and E. Alcott Street. The circumstances surrounding the incident were not immediately clear. The victim later showed up at a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety.

Tuesday afternoon, police — including the Special Response Team — surrounded a house on Burdick a few blocks north of the gas station, where the shooter was believed to have fled. The homeowner would not let officers come in, so they had to get a search warrant. As police were on the scene waiting for the warrant, busy Burdick Street was shut down between Reed and Maple Avenues.

Police eventually got the warrant, entered the home to look for evidence and took one person into custody.

That person, identified later by police as 22-year-old Antonio Norman, was arraigned Friday charges of assault with intent to murder, felony firearm and carrying a concealed weapon.

KDPS said on Tuesday that another suspect was still being sought. A description of that suspect has not been released.
