Bath Township detectives continue to investigate the March shooting of a Navy SEAL.
The township’s police chief said Thursday that he is hopeful to close the case soon.
Christopher Heben told police on March 27 that he was shot in the abdomen while walking through the parking lot near the Mustard Seed Market.
Heben, who served as a SEAL from 1996 to 2006, told police that after he was shot, he followed the vehicle carrying the shooting suspect but began to feel ill and drove himself to the Bath Township Police Department.
Heben, 44, of Granger Township, described the vehicle he was chasing as a gray, low-profile sports car with a raised spoiler on the trunk, black rims and dark tinted side and back windows.
Police Chief Michael McNeely said Thursday that Heben continues to help investigators. No suspects have been publicly identified.
“We’re making progress,” McNeely said. “We hope to conclude the investigation real soon.”
