GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A 17-year-old was shot and injured on Grand Rapids’ West Side Monday night.

It happened around 9:15 p.m. near the intersection of Jennette Avenue NW and 9th Street.

The Grand Rapids Police Department said the victim was shot in the chin, then the bullet went out the other side of her face and hit her shoulder. Her injuries are not considered life-threatening, police said.

No arrests had been made as of Tuesday. Police said they are looking for three male suspects, who they said were in a silver minivan.

Surveillance video from the neighborhood obtained by News 8 shows the minivan drive up to the area headed in one direction, turn around in the road and then park facing the opposite direction. Three males get out. One of them fires three shots. All three then hurry back to the minivan, which pulls away quickly. 

The video does not show the victim being shot.
