GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities have identified the man who was fatally shot in Grand Rapids early Saturday morning.

The Grand Rapids Police Department identified the victim as 28-year-old Lou Cleveland Luckett of Grand Rapids. He was shot around 2:30 a.m. Saturday while at a party in the 1200 block of Boston Street near Kalamazoo Avenue.

A woman was also shot and taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. Police have not released her name. 

Despite the number of the people at the party, the police department said investigators received little cooperation.

Police say they are looking into the possibility that the shooting may be linked to two other shootings in Grand Rapids over the weekend: one on Turner Avenue NW on the West Side and another along S. Division Avenue in the Heartside neighborhood.
