West Bloomfield Man Shot in Arm During Fight

The 20-year-old victim was treated for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, according to the Oakland County Sheriff's Office.

A 20-year-old West Bloomfield man was shot in the arm after he and his friends were in an altercation with another group of men early Saturday morning, according to a report from Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe.

The victim told deputies that he was walking into the club Elektricity, 15 S. Saginaw St., in Pontiac, when three unknown men shouted racial slurs at him and his friends. According to deputies, words were exchanged and one of the men, suspected to be about 20 years old, retrieved a handgun from a vehicle. Shots were fired and the suspect fled in what deputies believe to be a dark green, four-door sedan, but the vehicle could not be located by the OCSO.

Four spent shell casings were later recovered at the scene. The victim was treated at McLaren Hospital for a non-life-threatening gunshot wound.

Sheriffs are investigating the incident.
