GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - A man who was shot in the back of a car early Sunday morning just south of downtown Grand Rapids has been declared dead, according to police.
Andre Terrell Davis, 21, suffered life-threatening injuries when he was shot around 3:30 a.m. while riding in a car that was traveling on Division Avenue SE south of Wealthy Street SE.
According to police, the car, which contained several people, was shot at from all sides. It was unclear whether Davis was the intended target of the shooting.
Davis was taken to the hospital where he was listed in critical condition. Grand Rapids police told 24 Hour News 8 he was pronounced dead on Monday afternoon.
Davis's cousin Tanisha Barnes remembered him as typically quiet, but also funny.
Davis, a 2011 Grand Rapids Christian High School graduate and standout football player, had been involved in a fight at Latvian Hall on Grand Avenue north of Michigan Street prior to the shooting. It was unclear if the shooting was connected to the fight, police said.
Another shooting occurred at Latvian Hall on Sunday morning.
In that incident, a woman was shot in the arm around 2 a.m. Witnesses told police that four suspects got into a car and drove off after the shooting.
The woman would not cooperate with police about what lead up to the shooting. Officers are investigating to see whether the two shootings are connected.
There have been no arrests in either shooting.
"I just want justice. I know a lot of people don't like to tell what they know because of whatever reason, but the only way we can get past this kind of stuff in a community as a whole is if people did step up to the plate," Tanisha Barnes said.
