    West side again–which is not really the “West side ” anymore,it’s the Hall and Division street area steadily being transplanted by Bliss. When they find him,it should be a pretty dramatic event–similar to Philly tonight?There’s always a standoff it seems.

    Grand Rapids police responded to reports of shots fired on the city’s West Side Thursday night.

    It happened on Alpine Avenue and 5th Street, north of Stocking Avenue. That’s near the Holiday bar.

    Police didn’t provide a statement, but neighbors told (another channel) they heard four shots.
    Absconder,is that you?
    Thank you mayor Bliss.

        The reward is the good feeling you’ll get,knowing you helped remove one more thug off the streets of the West side.That would leave about 500 more to go in that area(Seward to Stocking,Alpine from Stocking to Leonard,approximately)–and then you might not have gunshots occurring at all hours of the day there.
