GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - After surrounding a residence, Grand Rapids police say a man believed to have been armed was not holed up in an apartment.
Police responded to the Creston neighborhood Friday evening after receiving more than one call to 911 about a man with a shotgun.
When they got to the area of Plainfield Avenue NE and Coit Avenue, the man was no long on the street.
Police were told the man went into a second-floor apartment at 1420 Plainfield Avenue NE. They brought in tactical teams as they tried to reach him.
Police surrounded the apartment and got a search warrant and went in. When they checked out the apartment, they did not find the man inside.
"We were told by some witness that he went into an apartment on the second floor. That is where we set up a perimeter and locked it down, obtained a search warrant then went inside to search for the suspect. The suspect was not inside," GRPD Capt. Curt VanderKooi said.
Police started to clear the scene around 8 p.m.
Police also said the people that called 911 to say the man threatened to shoot them were not on scene when they got on scene. Police say they would like to talk to those complainants.
There were streets blocked off in the area during the incident, but they have since reopened.
