GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A possible gunshot was fired near police officers early Wednesday morning, prompting a much more significant police presence.

It started shortly after 12:30 a.m. when police say a car blew through a stop sign near Bates Street and Henry Avenue in the city’s Southeast side.  When officers went to investigate, they found the suspect vehicle had been abandoned not far away, parked up against a fence in the driveway of a home, with its lights still on.

While the officers were checking the yard, they heard a loud bang ring out from nearby, that may have been a gunshot.  They cleared the yard and called for additional help, due to the possible seriousness of the situation.

After a few hours of searching and securing the area, police identified the likely driver of the vehicle and took him into custody.  There were no injuries.

    Why is EGRPD there? They are the biggest joke police department around. They should keep to their side of the tracks. Always out of their jurisdiction trying to play real cops and robbers.
