Battle Creek police are continuing their search not only for the gunman but for a motive in the Friday morning killing of Frankie Zanetti, 63. Friday night police said they are looking for a relative, Brian Zanetti, 47, of Battle Creek as a person of interest.
They found Williams in the driveway of the house. He told them he had been shot but could not tell the officers who shot him.
Elliott said about 20 people, all invited, were at an impromptu party when the argument and fight began.
"They all knew each other. It was an informal gathering," Elliott said. "There was an argument and a fight.
"Two or three people were shooting at each other," Elliott said. "Mr. Williams was likely not the intended target and may have been caught in a crossfire. The initial information is showing us that."
Police said they found 16 shell casings at the scene in at least two areas, leading officers to believe there were multiple people firing.
Officers also recovered a handgun at the scene and said they believe it was being carried by Williams and was the gun used to kill him.
"There were two sides because of two different areas of shell casings," he said. "Common sense would tell us they were shooting at each other. We are trying to determine whether or not there is a third person in there and exactly what Mr. Williams' role was in the fight, if he had a role, or if he was just there and happened to get caught in the cross-fire. We haven't ruled out that he was trying to break up a fight."
