Michiana CrimeStoppers is offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest of a man suspected of shooting a woman in Niles, Mich.

The Berrien County Sheriff’s Department was called at about 5 p.m. March 22 to the 2600 block of N. Fifth Street in Niles, where they found a 24-year-old woman with a gunshot wound. The woman underwent surgery and survived the shooting.

Witnesses told police that the suspect — later identified as Michael Jerome Exom III — ran from the scene. Police are still searching for him.

CrimeStoppers is offering up to $1,000 to individuals who provide anonymous information about Exom’s whereabouts.
