GENEVA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – The Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office announced Saturday that it is now investigating a deadly mobile home park shooting as a homicide.

One person died in a shooting in a Van Buren County mobile home park Thursday night. Van Buren County Sheriff Daniel Abbott told FOX 17 that deputies were called to the Port of Call Mobile Home Park at 68304 County Road 380 in Geneva Township at about 9 p.m. Thursday. A woman reported that the owner of the mobile home had just been shot.  Deputies found the man dead by the front door with a gunshot wound.

The victim was later identified as Shaun Pierre Gill, 42, of Geneva Township and a longtime resident of the community.

A K9 unit from South Haven tracked suspects to an abandoned mobile home nearby.  Investigators say that it appeared a vehicle had recently left the scene.

Investigators say they believe the mobile home was targeted and the shooting was not random.

The suspects were identified only as two black males.

The incident remains under investigation by the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office.
