Police: 2 shot outside Wyoming apartment complex

Kent County

WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people were shot and wounded in the parking lot of a Wyoming apartment complex Friday afternoon.

“One (of the victims is) in very critical condition, one less so. Certainly the second one we believe to be non-life-threatening,” Wyoming Department of Public Safety Capt. James Maguffee said. “They were both transferred to local hospitals.”

The shooting happened around 2 p.m. at Waterchase Apartments off Byron Center Avenue SW north of Prairie Parkway.

Police say the shooting is not believed to be random. The relationship between the shooter or shooters and victims is not yet known. It’s also not yet clear if the victims and shooter(s) live at the apartment complex.

No suspects are in custody, but police said there was no reason to believe there was a threat to the public.

Police are looking for a silver minivan that may have one or more broken windows. They did not provide suspect descriptions Friday afternoon.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to contact Wyoming police at 616.530.7300 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
