The shooting happened around 10:20 p.m. in the 1300 block of McReynolds Avenue near Alpine Avenue NW. The Grand Rapids Police Department said it sent officers there after reports of three shots fired. They found one shell casing.

A witness told officers they saw a group standing over one person and said that a shot was fired directly at the person on the ground.
