“They were apparently fighting over a gun. A couple of shots went off into an apartment, slightly wounded a woman in one of the apartments,” he said.

The woman is expected to be OK.

“The one guy was running after the guy who shot him and then he collapsed and was like rolling around on the ground and the police were here at that time when he collapsed,” said a woman.

“I take the trash out this morning and somebody’s dead on the ground … like, wow,” said a man.

Apartment residents said they heard a total of six gunshots during the incident.

Police were searching for a suspect late Monday afternoon. There was no immediate word as to how the suspect and victim knew each other or what the victim was doing in Clinton Township.
