GRAND RAPIDS, Mich - The Grand Rapids Police Department is currently working to determine what led up to a shooting late Thursday night that left one person injured.

The shooting happened just before 10:30 p.m. in the 300 block of Leonard Street, not far from Alpine Avenue.

Police say one person showed up to the hospital suffering from a gunshot wound to the leg.  That victim, a male, is expected to survive.

Police are still working to gather details, but believe this incident is separate from a shooting in Grand Rapids Thursday afternoon that led to a heavy police response at a home on Pine Avenue.

    The Leonard and Alpine area has really been going downhill over the last ten years. It used to be a solid middle class area, still safe to walk around at night. Not anymore. And the city is completely ignoring it in favor of putting all its NW side eggs into seeing how many bars they can put up on Bridge street. I guess the idea is to keep the rich white drunks close to downtown and put a Popeye’s up on Alpine to encourage the violent people of color to head up towards Comstock Park. But that isn’t racist policy or anything, right Roz?

        If it was only one block,but the whole damn West side is ghetto…except west of Leonard/Walker and small sections of Tamarack,Pine,south of Walker st….maybe a couple blocks to 4th st.The rest is garbage,drug dealing minorities.Funny,whenever there’s a shooting somewhere in town,they always try to hide on the West side .No All American city anymore.Blame the city completely for this slow motion catastrophe that’s been occurring the last 15 years.
