GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — Officers with the Grand Rapids Police Department are working to determine what led up to several separate shootings overnight.
It was shortly before 1:30 a.m. when police were first called to Spectrum Butterworth hospital downtown after a 19-year-old man showed up with a gunshot wound. It is believed that the wound was self-inflicted; his condition is non-life threatening.
Within an hour of the call at the hospital, officers were dispatched to a shooting scene along Grandville Avenue SW. A 25-year-old man there was shot and suffered critical injuries. The details of this scene are still under investigation. The victim's injuries after surgery are serious but stable.
And at approximately 2:46 AM, GRPD received calls reporting shots fired near the Globe Apartments on Commerce Avenue SW. Callers said that they heard multiple gun shots with several people running from the area. Three people suffered non-life threatening injuries in this shooting.
Then later around 3:40 AM, there was home in the 600 block of Layfayette Avenue NE that was shot at. Nobody was hurt. This is the second report of shots fired near this area in two nights, however GRPD cannot confirm at this time that they are related. Police say they found shell casings at the scene after both incidents on Saturday and Sunday.
No suspects have been arrested in any incident yet, and at this point in the investigation, it is unclear whether or not any of these shootings are related.
Right now suspect information for these shootings is limited. Grand Rapids Police is urging anyone who has information on these shootings to call them or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
