Police: 1 hospitalized after Grand Rapids shooting

Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Police are investigating a shooting in Grand Rapids that left one person wounded.

The victim is an adult male who showed up at a hospital shortly after 3 p.m. Tuesday, the Grand Rapids Police Department tweeted. His condition wasn’t immediately available.

When officers arrived at the hospital, he was already undergoing treatment, so they weren’t able to talk to him.

But their investigation led them to Grandville Avenue SW near Tulip Street in the Roosevelt Park neighborhood.

Grand Rapids Public Schools says dismissal at Cesar Chavez Elementary, which is a few blocks away, was delayed for just a few minutes before 3:30 p.m. while authorities made sure the area was safe. No students were ever in danger, GRPS says.

Another man was injured in a shooting Monday night in the area of Buchanan Avenue SW and Burton Street, which is less than a mile away from the Tuesday scene. Police said it was too early to say whether the shootings are linked.
