GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Grand Rapids Police Department is investigating two shootings that happened early Monday morning.

Shortly before 1 a.m., GRPD police officers were called to the 100 block of Hall Street SW near the Hall Street Party Store on reports of a shooting. There, police found a victim who was hit by a single gunshot while sitting in a car. That person was taken to the hospital with injuries that are not considered life-threatening.

A couple hours later, around 3:30 a.m., police were called to the area of Franklin Street SE and Eastern Avenue SE on a report of shots being fired. Officers soon learned a woman had been taken from the scene in a private vehicle to a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg. Her injury is also not considered life-threatening.

Investigations are still ongoing for each of the shootings and there are no suspect details at this time for either incident. The two shootings are also not thought to be connected to one another, GRPD told News 8.
