MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. -- Police in Muskegon Heights are investigating after four people were shot early Sunday.

Police told FOX 17 the shooting happened in the 600 block of Hovey Ave. around 2:30 Sunday morning.

Four people were sent to the hospital, with two individuals remaining in critical condition as of Sunday evening, according to a source with the Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office.

One victim has since been released from the hospital.

No suspects have been named yet and no arrests have been made.

A cousin of one of the victims injured told FOX 17 that victim is actually the brother of Marquis Gresham, the Muskegon Heights junior and stand-out varsity basketball player who was shot and killed in a drive-by shooting in April 2014. Gresham was walking to a team basketball banquet at the time of the murder. Two people were later charged in connection to that shooting death.

Police would not comment Sunday night on any possible motive for this latest shooting. Police had initially reported just three people had been shot.

    I grew up in that area. Even 40 years ago that neighborhood around the ‘projects’ was nothing but gang bangers, cut throats and drugs dealers …. unfortunately nothing has changed.

      That’s untrue and u know it. 40 years ago, what is now known as the projects was a housing area for men who migrated here from the South to work at the foundries in the Muskegon area. They slept there according to the shifts they worked until they were able to afford housing of their own and relocate their families. There is even a documentary about it. The Heights was also a predominantly white area 40 years ago!

        I am not sure where you got your information from, but I grew up off Broadway and Wood streets by Bennett Pumps and Universal Cam Shaft. I went to Edgewood Elementary and played at John O. Harris park before it was Johnny O. Harris park. I am now in my 60’s and can tell you as long as I have been alive the’ projects’ have been nothing but low income housing that was a breeding ground for gangs, drugs and murderers.

        The Heights was predominately white until the 1960’s and then started to become more integrated. As an African-American, I know all to well how the integration of blacks in to those neighborhoods became more prevalent and accepted. By the 1970’s we were not only accepted in Muskegon Heights, African-Americans began to out number whites, Hispanics and Asians. My children’s classes at Edgewood were 90- 95% African-American by the time they tore down the old school and built the new one in the early mid 70’s. We ended up sending our children to West Michigan Christian because the Muskegon Heights public school system was so sad and pathetic even back then, My children now have college educations and are starting families of their own. Sometimes I still drive by the house I grew up in on Collins and I am ashamed of how that neighborhood has deteriorated so bad.

        I am not sure what Liberal revisionist history you have been taught, but those of us who lived and raised children in that area still know the truth!

    There are two specialty ofiecfs I would like to work in. My interest are in the nervous system and the endocrine system.In the 12 years I have been with my boyfriend, he has lost two sisters and a brother to different forms of lupus. He also lost his mother to the disease before 20 years before I met him. I feel working with an endocrinologist or neurologist I will be able to learn more on how these system works.The proctologist office would be at the bottom of the list. After experiencing a lower GI to rule out problems in my stomach. I refuse to go through that again.
