Authorities: 2 injured in shooting on S. Division in Cutlerville

Kent County

GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people were hospitalized following a shooting in Cutlerville Wednesday afternoon.

It happened just before 2 p.m. on S. Division Avenue near 60th Street in Gaines Township. A News 8 crew at the scene saw police in two areas in the span of about a block: One near the intersection of Peony Street and the other in front of Crossroads Alternative High. A witness said he found one of the victims on the sidewalk in front of the school.

Investigators and witnesses said a man was walking down the street when another man on a scooter fired at at least one shot, hitting him. The shooter then apparently shot himself accidentally.

Both were hospitalized and their conditions were stable.

While the motive remained under investigation Wednesday, deputies said the two men know one another and there was no outstanding threat to the public.

Deputies said they recovered a gun at the scene.
