Second victim found, one person arrested following deadly weekend shooting

HOLLAND TWP., Mich. — One person has been arrested and another victim has been located after a fatal shooting Sunday in Holland Township.

At 3:15 a.m. Sunday,  deputies responded to a  report of shots fired at the Hookah Lounge at 960 Butternut Drive in Holland Township. Anthony Lamb, 22, of Muskegon, was found with a gunshot wound.  He died a short time later.

Ottawa County investigators say that a second victim was found Monday. The 28-year-old Holland man suffered a gunshot wound to the leg, but fled the scene Sunday. He later showed up at a Grand Rapids hospital for treatment.  The man has been arrested on outstanding warrants not related to the shooting. He's currently lodged in the Kent County Jail.

They also say that a 27-year-old man, now identified as Adam Young, has been arrested for lying in connection with the shooting.

Young appeared in court Monday with a head bandage after being in a car crash after the deadly shooting, prior to his arrest. Young is no stranger to law enforcement: his criminal record includes past convictions for felony assault and auto theft.

Lamb was the half-brother of Tiana Carruthers, a survivor of the Kalamazoo shooting in February that killed six people.

"It should be noted that several rounds were fired at the scene," said Captain Mark Bennett with the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department. "There's at least two different weapons that were used at the scene we believe, but still a major focus of our investigation is to determine what happened at that scene at the time of the shooting."

No arrests have been made in Lamb's death; something that's not sitting right with his family.

"We want justice for Anthony," said Lamb's fiance, Ymani Williams. "I don't want it to be a cold case. Two kids lost their father, a family lost their brother, their nephews, son, grandson, everything. Anthony really impacted everybody he met."

Lamb's family believes he may have died trying to break up a fight. He leaves behind two children, a fiance and a big family.

"He was my little brother, he was my baby, he was my joy, he was my heart and my world," said Angela Brown, Lamb's sister. "I feel like he laid his life down at a young age trying to protect someone else."

Police do know most of the people involved in the shooting were inside the hookah lounge at some point in the night. What caused the night to turn deadly is still under investigation.
