BENTON HARBOR, Mich. — The Benton Harbor Department of Public Safety (DPS) is investigating a deadly shooting that happened just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

Officers responded to an apartment complex in the 900 block of Buss to find a 41-year-old Dowagiac man dead.

Benton Harbor DPS says video from the apartment complex shows at least ten people saw it happen, but officers say witnesses are being uncooperative and they refuse to come forward.

According to the video, two men dressed in dark colored clothing were watching the group before one man came over and intentionally pointed, aimed and fired at the victim.
