GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Investigators say a 23-year-old man is dead after a shooting in Grand Rapids.
It happened around 2:15 p.m. Wednesday on Wealthy Street and Diamond Avenue SE.
The alleged shooter called the Grand Rapids Police Department and surrendered without incident.
GRPD Chief Eric Payne said he was on his way to a community unity event when he stopped by the scene of the crime.
“This is upsetting to me. The senseless violence that is occurring on the streets, Payne said. “I am (upset) and everyone should be.”
The killing marked Grand Rapids’ 19th homicide of the year. That’s one more than the city saw in all of 2019.
