Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Grand Rapids Police Department is investigating a shooting that killed a man early Sunday morning.

Authorities say officers were dispatched to a fight on 28th Street near Kalamazoo Avenue just before 3 a.m. When they got there, they say it looked like an after hours party was happening at a business.

While talking to the people involved in the fight, police heard gun shots coming from inside the building. They found Tarell Mapp, a 31-year-old man, suffering from a gunshot wound.

Authorities say officers pulled the victim to safety and gave him aid until advanced medical care arrived. The man was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say this is the 14th homicide the city of Grand Rapids has had in 2019. Back in 2016, one man was killed and 8 people were hurt in a shooting that happened at the same location.

No other information has been released as of Sunday afternoon. GRPD is investigating the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to contact GRPD at 616.456.3400 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345
