Battle Creek police have one man in custody and are searching for two other suspects after a 34-year-old Battle Creek man was shot in the neck early Sunday morning.

Battle Creek police are investigating a Sunday morning shooting they believe stemmed from an altercation between the victim and at least one other person at Club Tampico hours before. Battle Creek police responded shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday to an alley behind 198 West Rittenhouse Avenue where they found a 34-year-old Battle Creek man sitting in his vehicle with a single gunshot wound to the neck. The victim was taken to Bronson Battle Creek Hospital where he was treated and released.
