Grand Rapids

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman was shot multiple times and killed at a Grand Rapids apartment Wednesday.

It happened around 1:20 p.m. in the 1400 block of Burke Avenue NE near Diamond Avenue.

Police responding to reports of a shooting at Oakview Apartments found a woman with multiple gunshot wounds, the Grand Rapids Police Department said. She died at the scene.

Her name wasn’t immediately released, but police said she was 24. While police would say she lived in the area, they wouldn’t specify whether she was shot in her own home.

Police said they have a man in custody for questioning; he was described as a person of interest. They said the man and woman knew one another, though they didn’t say how.

Police are not aware of any other injuries, GRPD said, and there is no threat to the public.

“The Major Case Team is going to continue their investigation. We’re waiting on a search warrant and from there they’ll conduct their investigation and try and to piece this tragedy back together,” GRPD Capt. Geoff Collard said.

Anyone with information on the shooting should call GRPD at 616.456.3380 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
