GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Police say a 20-year-old man ordered an Uber and asked the driver to take him home after he was shot.

The Uber driver told police he picked the man up outside J Gardella’s Tavern, 11 Ionia Ave. SW.    He discovered the man had been shot and then called police, according to a release.  He dropped the man off at a home near the Fulton Street Market, police said.

Police were called to the market to talk to the driver at about 12:26 a.m. Thursday, according to a release.

The victim’s name has not been released.   The incident remains under investigation and no other details about the shooting are available at this time.
