Grand Rapids police investigating four separate shootings

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Police found themselves busy with cases early in the morning on Sunday, June 23rd.

Over the course of a few hours, the Grand Rapids Police department responded to four shootings across the city.

The Lieutenant tells us the first shooting occurred at about 10:30 p.m. Saturday night on the 600 block of Liberty St SW. A suspect shot up a house after some sort of family argument and was arrested at the scene. No one was hurt in the incident.

Less than two hours later at 1 a.m. Sunday morning, police were dispatched to the 1500 block of Wealthy St SE. A suspect walked into a crowd of people, fired two shots at them, and then ran away. No one was hurt and police are still looking for the suspect.

A third call took them to the intersection of Temple St and Butler St at about 2:29 a.m. Police tell FOX 17 that the shooter was outside the house and the girl was inside. She was hospitalized and is expected to make a full recovery while police look for the suspect.

A fourth shooting at Burton and Division by Robins Lock Shop came shortly after that at 2:51 a.m. Two men were arguing outside of their cars when one shot the other in the leg. Both men are expected to be fine.

The Grand Rapids Police Department tells us none of the shootings are related.

This is a developing story. We will continue to bring you updates as we get them.

    Why even respond? Im sure someone had a camera recording the whole thing. Now someone will get mad, say something about excessive force and our super mayor will find grounds to fire them. Inner city GR is a lose lose situation for police officers.

    And there are a lot of residents that wonder why the cops are on edge every time they respond to calls in some areas of the city.

    What exactly are the people that live in the crime prone areas actually doing to help get rid of the thugs? I don’t mean words, I mean serious community action. Step one would be working with the police, not against them.Those residents that don’t want crime where they live need to stop turning their eyes to it.

    Yes,the liberal mayor is the big problem,but her hiring Mark Washington as city manager was the killer.He was hired to crack down on white police officers,hire a black chief and let get the city commisdion to pass the law that fines whites $500. The building of low income apartments on Stocking and Alpine will only lure more criminals in to our west side neighborhood.Thank you mayor Bliss.

      Believe it or not though, if you look at violent crime stats, you’ll find that Kalamazoo is considerably more dangerous than Grand Rapids. Whoda thunk it?
