HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Detectives with the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department have released a photo of a young man believed to be responsible for a shooting outside the Holland Town Event Center on March 15.
Investigators say deputies were called to the building at 12330 James St. around 1:40 a.m. to assist management in dispersing party goers when several fights broke out.
Approximately 100 people were in the vicinity when deputies arrived on scene and heard two shots fired. Further investigation revealed two shell casings at the scene that appeared to have been fired from a handgun.
There was no evidence immediately following the shooting that indicated anyone had been injured. Deputies were able to develop a limited suspect description from a witness at the scene.
Later in the afternoon the same day, a Holland Township woman contacted authorities saying she’d witnessed the shooting and had damage to her 2014 Kia Optima, which she told authorities she didn’t notice until several hours after the shooting.
Through witness accounts, detectives have developed a suspect description of the alleged shooter, who’s said to be in his early 20’s, about 5’6″ with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a red shirt and blue jeans.
Detectives don’t believe the woman in the Kia Optima was the intended target of the shooting, rather a vehicle near her at the time of the shooting.
Authorities are asking any witnesses with information about this shooting, or anyone that recognizes the individual pictured above to contact Silent Observer at 1-877-88-SILENT.
