KENTWOOD, Mich – A man was shot in the lower torso after a party in Kentwood, the latest in a wave of recent shootings in the Grand Rapids suburb.

According to Captain Richard Roberts of the Kentwood Police, the 22-year-old man suffered a gunshot wound and was conscious, but uncooperative, when they arrived.

Kentwood police set up a perimeter on the scene and called in Wyoming K-9 units to search for the suspect who fled on foot.

Police say neither the suspect or the victim actually live at the residence.

The victim’s name is not being released at this time, but he has non-life threatening injuries.

    if i lived in kentwood id be at every city meeting with a list of new victims until the city did something about the gangs there. What sucks is you know the cops know whats going on and they’ll lie to you to try and search your vehicle but wont really do anything about all the known gang members and drug dealers.

    What really gets me is the person shot is uncooperative well lock his a– up until he talks .This crap has got to stop and if he dont care who shot him fine but what about all the other people that live around there?Bullets have no names and dont care what direction they head or tear through.
    Parents that are letting these kids throw parties you think you have it under control but you dont and kids involved in gangs show up anywhere.
    Let me guess you were letting you child have a party for the end of summer?WAKE UP PEOPLE IF YOUR LET PARTIES GO ON IN OR AROUND YOUR HOUSE YOU CAN EXPECT TROUBLE 80 PERCENT OF THE TIME.
    The police need to make these kids talk whatever way necessary and people will say oh thats not right UNTIL IT IS IN THEIR BACK YARD OR STREET!! Then they yell the police are not doing their JOB.
