5 wounded when shots fired into crowd at party near SVSU

KOCHVILLE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WJBK) -- Authorities say at least five people were hurt after shots were fired into a crowd at a party near Saginaw Valley State University in central Michigan.

Saginaw County sheriff's officials say the people were treated at hospitals and that their injuries aren't considered life-threatening. They say the victims attending the large party early Sunday at the Campus VIllage apartments in Kochville Township were not university students.

Investigators are searching for two suspects. The main suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s with dreadlocks and frosted blonde tips.

The campus was placed on lockdown for a short time and students were urged to stay in their residences. The lockdown was later lifted.

Anyone with information should contact Saginaw Central Dispatch at 989-797-4580. SVSU has arranged a special hotline for concerned parents and students to call at 989-964-4348.
