NORTON SHORES, Mich. (WOOD) — One person was killed and another injured in a shooting in Norton Shores Thursday.
It happened around 1:30 p.m. at the intersection of Columbia Avenue and Continental Street, east of Getty Street.
Norton Shores Police Chief Jon Gale said that when emergency responders arrived after a report of shots fired, they found a man dead in a car at the intersection.
Police have identified him as 24-year-old Jamarr Tyrece Burse of Muskegon.
A teen victim was found about a block away. Police say the teen had been shot while in the car, then ran to a home nearby. The teen was taken to the hospital and was expected to recover, the chief said.
Rosie Buchanan, an aunt of Burse, was at the scene on Thursday.
“Our nephew was very loved. He has a lot of support. It was a senseless situation here,” she told News 8.
No one was in custody as of Thursday afternoon. Police say a suspect was seen getting into a light-colored sedan before fleeing from the scene.
They believe it was a targeted incident, and say the public is not in danger.
Police are asking anyone with information to call the Norton Shores Police Department at 231.733.2691, Silent Observer at 231.722.7463 or 911.
“If you know anything, any information, if you heard anything … saw anything, please report it. We’re here to get justice,” the aunt asked the community.
Gale said police believe there is surveillance video that could help in the investigation.
