MSP: Suspect in West MI shooting, fire arrested in TN

Newaygo County

Authorities investigate a shooting at a house in Grant Township, Monday, March 29, 2021.

GRANT TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has been arrested in connection to a Newaygo-area shooting that wounded a woman last week, Michigan State Police say.

The suspect was arrested Tennessee, MSP said, though it didn’t say exactly where. He is expected to be extradited back to Michigan. The timeline for that remains unclear.

His name was not released pending arraignment and police wouldn’t say how old he is, either.

The shooting happened in the early hours of March 29. MSP said someone opened fire on a home on Fox Drive near Thornapple Avenue in Grant Township, southeast of Newaygo. One of the bullets hit a 43-year-old woman inside, seriously injuring her.

Police say a fire that sparked later Monday at X-Pert Truck & Trailer in Sparta is connected to the shooting.
