Woman seriously wounded as shots fired at Grant-area house

Newaygo County

GRANT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A woman had to be airlifted to the hospital early Monday after shots were fired into a Grant-area home, wounding her.

Michigan State Police said troopers were called shortly before 2:30 a.m. for a report of a shooting at a house on Fox Drive near the intersection of Thornapple Avenue in Grant Township, southeast of Newaygo.

State police said the suspect was outside and fired several rounds into the house, hitting the 43-year-old woman, who was inside.

MSP said the woman was later listed in critical condition at a Grand Rapids hospital.

On Monday afternoon, MSP Spl. Lt. Michelle Robinson said the shooting appears to have been targeted and that though the shooter had not yet been caught, there was not believed to be a threat to the public. She did not provide a suspect description.

Robinson said police are looking into whether a fire at the X-Pert Truck & Trailer dealership along E. Division Street on the east side of Sparta later Monday was connected. She would not comment on why they were exploring that option other than to say that the timeline made it possible.

It’s about a 25-minute drive from the scene of the shooting to the dealership.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call the MSP Hart Post at 231.873.2171 or 911.
