Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) – One person has died after a shooting on Grand Rapids’ northwest side Sunday morning, police said.

It happened around 11:30 a.m. on Veto Street NW near Marion Avenue NW, just north of West Fulton Street.

According to investigators, when police arrived on scene, they found the victim, an adult man, unresponsive with multiple gunshot wounds. 

The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. 

While police have yet to release any additional information about the victim or possible suspects, a man living next door to where the shooting occurred told News 8 he was enjoying a quiet Sunday morning when suddenly his wife heard three gunshots. 

“She was just about crying, she was so shaken up by it,” Lou Wislocki said. “It’s never happened here before. It’s really a nice, peaceful block, a lot of college kids live here.” 

The Kent County Medical Examiner’s Office will conduct an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
