Police in Kalamazoo announce charges in Fraternity Village shooting
KALAMAZOO, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Kalamazoo Public Safety officers have identified the suspected gunman in a shooting that took place last month near the WMU campus.
It happened just before 2:00 a.m. in the 3400 block of West Michigan Avenue, near Fraternity Village.
Upon arrival, officers found two people injured, one who was treated and released for injuries to her back from flying glass, and another with a non-life threatening gunshot wound to the leg.
Further investigation demonstrated to police that the victim shot in the leg was, in fact, the shooter, and that the wound was self-inflicted.
The shooter, identified as Emon Edwin Williams, was treated and released from Bronson Hospital.
On Tuesday, Williams was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, and reckless use of firearm.
The concealed weapon charge is a 5-year felony.
Police indicated that the weapon has not yet been recovered, and no other injuries were reported.
