The Grand Rapids Police Department investigated two incidents of shots fired and a Felonious Assault that started in the Blackhills neighborhood and concluded hours later in downtown Grand Rapids. The first incident started at approximately 3:17 am, after officers were called to the intersection of Woolsey Dr and Oxford St, on a report of 10 shots fired in the area. Upon arrival, officers found bullet holes at a residence on the 800 block of Woolsey. The residence was occupied but no injuries were reported. After the shots were fired, witnesses reported seeing a silver vehicle fleeing from the area.

Approximately 8 hours later, at 11:18 am, officers responded to reports of “sounds of 10 shots” at the same residence on the 800 block of Woolsey. Witnesses reported seeing 3 males inside a silver BMW who were shooting at the house. Another witness reported seeing people shooting at each other just prior to the suspect’s vehicle fleeing the scene in a BMW.

About 8 minutes later, a citizen who was traveling northbound on U.S. 131 at the Pearl street off ramp observed a disabled vehicle, apparently stalled on the ramp. As the passerby stopped to assist, one of the suspects in the BMW pointed a handgun at him. The caller notified police. Officers recognized the description of the vehicle in this incident was similar to that of the vehicle information provided in the shots fired incidents on Oxford St. When officers arrived, they conducted a high risk traffic stop. Two adult male suspects were arrested and two hand guns were recovered from the car. Witnesses reported seeing a 3rd suspect running east from the vehicle possibly with a rifle before officers arrived on scene. The 3rd suspect that fled was described as a white male with neck and facial tattoos wearing a light colored hooded sweatshirt.

The Grand Rapids Police Department’s Major Case Team is currently investigating the incident. Anyone who may have additional information is requested to call 456-3400 or Silent observer at 774-2345. Silent Observer can also be contacted confidentially at www.silentobserver.org.
