Two shot, one dead in Saginaw

Posted: Updated:

(09/23/12) - Two men were shot and one was killed, Sunday afternoon in Saginaw. 

Saginaw police say a 21-year-old man from Saginaw was shot in the shoulder. He was treated and released from a local hospital. A 19-year-old man, also from Saginaw, was shot in the neck and pronounced dead at the scene.

Saginaw police Detective Sgt. Joseph Dutoi says they also found 28 bullet casings, of several different types, on the ground at Birch Park Townhouses. Several buildings were also shot.

Saginaw police say the shootings happened shortly after 3 p.m., but they were actually called to the complex three times Sunday. Neighbors say 50 or 60 people started fighting early in the afternoon. 

The townhouse community is equipped with multiple security cameras, but power was out at the time of the shooting. Police hope someone nearby can help them figure out what happened.

The shooting death marks the eighteenth homicide in Saginaw in 2012.
