GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Police say they are investigating after two teens were shot during a party early Saturday morning.

Police responded to the 600 block of Delaware Street SE about 12:24 a.m. after hearing multiple shots fired.

Upon arrival, officers noticed several people running and found two victims with gunshot wounds. Police say two 16-year-old boys were shot, one in the torso and the other in the upper leg.

Officers say they found approximately 20 shell casings at the scene.

Both victims were taken to nearby hospitals and suffered from non-life threatening injuries, according to police.

Deputies say their preliminary investigation shows the suspects fired the shots into a crowd of people from across the street.

We’re told that is when someone from the crowd returned gunfire.

Police say they have no description of the suspect(s) but two handguns were recovered at the scene.

Anyone with information is asked to call Grand Rapids Police or Silent Observer.

**Editor’s note: An earlier version of this story described the two 16-year-olds involved as “men.” A correction has since been made.
