WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — Wyoming police say a 19-year-old man died after being run over by a truck early Sunday morning.

Police say they responded to a call about a domestic disturbance near the 1100 block of Whiting Street SW around 1 a.m. After arriving on scene, additional police officers were called to the scene to help control an angry crowd.

Detectives are still investigating what caused the incident, but they believe that a group of men fired on a man in a truck, which led to the teenager being run over. He was pronounced dead on scene.

The driver of the truck, a 28-year-old Grand Rapids man, fled the scene, but detectives were able to track him down and take him into custody shortly after.

The driver is currently being held at the Kent County Jail on charges of leaving the scene of a fatal car crash and probable cause for open murder.

The victim’s identity is being withheld until family can be notified.

The suspect is expected to be arraigned in court on Monday.

Detectives continue to investigate this incident. Anyone with information is encouraged to call Wyoming Police at 616.530.7300 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
