GEORGETOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. — The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the shooting of a vehicle that happened outside a Meijer store early Saturday morning.

The incident happened just before 3:30 a.m. Saturday at the Meijer at 550 Baldwin St.

At 3:30 a.m. Ottawa County Central Dispatch received reports of people hearing gunshots in the area of the Meijer store. Meanwhile, a nearby sheriff’s deputy on patrol also heard the shots fired and saw an unknown vehicle fleeing at a high rate of speed.

That deputy then saw another vehicle at the Meijer store with several flat tires and damage consistent with being struck by gunfire. Witnesses reported seeing a male subject fleeing from that vehicle.

Police set up a perimeter and a suspect was located and taken into custody without incident. That suspect was not injured and is being held in the Ottawa County jail.

The investigation showed that two vehicles originally were involved in an altercation in the Grand Rapids area that entered into Ottawa County, including near the Meijer store.

Police are still working to obtain a description of the vehicle that fled the area.

Anybody with any information should contact the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office at (616) 738-4000, Ottawa County Central Dispatch at 1-800-249-0911 or Silent Observer at (616) 994-7850.

      There is nothing wrong with Jenison. It’s quiet & virtually crime free except for the hood rats that drive in here & cause a problem.

      Like the story clearly stated… the altercation did not begin in Jenison, but up the road in Kent County, most likely a place such as Grandville…

      I do. And it has saved me from being robbed in the parking lot at River town. I heard the buffoon sneaking up on us. My wife knows to duck between cars on my word so just as he got close she ducked and I turned around with my hand on my carry weapon. I went from being “‘ hey assh*le to Mr real quick. I asked why he chose this parking lot and he said because the store has a no gun policy and they thought it has proven to be a ripe hunting ground. So we don’t support any anti legal gun stores and rivertown is one of them. I advise you to stay clear of that place.
      BTW. After I told the punk I should shoot him as a public service ( which would have been illegal and I never had to remove my loaded weapon from its tactical holster ) the punk and his partner in crime fled after a long hard stare. BTW it was two white thugs. Don’t be stereotyping, so am I. In fact both times I’ve had to make it known that I was armed and prepared ( and well trained and practiced ) for two in the chest and one to head if the person tried to harm us. I suggested they drop their knives and they did.before they ran away. I kept them for a while as trophies ( there where both wearing gloves and there where no prints ) but have since destroyed them with a oxy torch.
