Police searching for suspect in Benton Harbor shooting


Police in Benton Harbor say they're still searching for a 17-year-old suspect in a Saturday afternoon shooting.

Police say officers were called to a home in the 300 block of John Street around 4:30 p.m. Saturday. When they arrived, officers found a 27-year-old man who had been shot twice in leg and groin areas. The man, whose name was not released, was taken to a local hospital for treatment.

During their investigation, police say witnesses gave them a vehicle description along with the names of a suspect and a woman who may have been driving. Police say they found the vehicle about a block away and arrested 18-year-old Shinnarah Bailey, the woman they believe was the driver. Police say the suspected shooter fled on foot.

Police don't believe this was a random shooting. Officers believe the shooting may have been from a long-lasting feud.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Benton Harbor Dept. of Public Safety at 269-927-8435.
