GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Grand Rapids police continue to search for three young males who allegedly fired gunshots at a home and then eluded a standoff at the residence.
The incident started after a house in the 700 block of College Avenue near Worden Street just south of Franklin Street was fired upon around 8 p.m. Wednesday.
Three suspects then ran away north on College Avenue, made their way to Morris Avenue, one block west, where a witness saw the suspects running through a yard.
The suspects were then seen entering the house on College Avenue. They did not break in, police said. It is unknown whether they live there or are familiar to the homeowner.
A heavy police presence, including a SWAT team, was at the scene and authorities used a loud speaker to order the suspects out of the house.
Neighbors in some surrounding houses were asked to go into their basements or evacuate.
No one was hurt.
Police cleared the scene just after 11 p.m. and told 24 Hour News 8 there was no one in the home.
The suspects, believed to be in their teens, were armed with at least one handgun, police said.
