Police ID man shot, killed at crowded party on 28th St in Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — While responding to a call for a large party, officer heard the shots ring out that left one man dead.

Grand Rapids police were initially responding to what they called an "after-hours" party at about 3 a.m. Sunday morning.

A crowd had gathered inside a business on the 1800 block of 28th Street, but was sent running into the parking lot when the shots went off.

The crowd brought the 31-year-old male victim with a gunshot wound out with them as they fled. Police have identified the victim as Tarell Marquise Mapp.

Officers pulled the victim to safety and attempted to save him, but he died of his injuries.

Witnesses are currently being questioned while forensics units and detectives continue to investigate.

This is the second time a deadly shooting has happened at that location. In 2016, a man was also killed while attending an after hours party.

    Lmao. Some of the commentators here are pathetic. *Bugger Off*. You can’t wake up every morning with hate in your heart. Have some respect for the family who will mourn their fallen loved one. Forbid you ever have to feel the pain of waking up to hear some other being took the life of someone you care about.

    Who owns the building? I’d think that he has to be partly responsible providing a space for the thugs to party, especially after 2:00 AM. Must be that he forgot about another murder in 2016. Same crowd, same circumstances, same result.

    WHO has hate in their hearts,”human race”?It’s isn’t “bugger off”.–who’s white ,I’m sure.There hasn’t been one bullet fired(out of hundreds),one person shot(of over 75) or one person killed(14 now) by a white person this year. But minorities,going to “parties”,are carrying guns with love.Stupid comment.What we HATE is living near people that don’t a crap about living life the right way–which is,work,obey the law,pay your child support,take the trash out,keep the noise low,stop dealing drugs–and quit stabbing and killing in our city.Take it back to Flint and Detroit–where you came from.

      THIRTEEN KIDS?I just saw that on the news–never thought your comment was true.That’s outrageously irresponsible to have that many kids at 31 years old.No one can support 13 except Lebron James.Ridiculous.

    So… you can not say anything critical about the mayor of GR.

    Very interesting, what do you think will happen when the people are fed up with the lies and distortions of the truth?
