BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Police in Battle Creek are investigating after two men showed up at a hospital Wednesday, each with a gunshot wound to his leg.

In a news release, the Battle Creek Police Department says officers later found spent gunshot rounds in the first block of E. Grand Circle. Officers searched a house for possible suspects and weapons after that, “but neither were found.

“The homeowner was arrested on unrelated charges. Involved parties are not cooperating with law enforcement.”

Police told FOX 17 the victims were Battle Creek men, ages 23 and 24. And police say the shootings stemmed from a feud between the two men. Investigators are looking into whether the two are connected to any gangs.

The Battle Creek Police are still looking for more information from the public about the incidents. You can call Central Dispatch at (269)-781-0991 or Silent Observer at (269)-964-3888.
