1 arrested in Wyoming officer-involved shooting; no injuries

WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — One person was arrested after a domestic situation led to an officer-involved shooting in Wyoming Wednesday.

The Wyoming Department of Public Safety told 24 Hour News 8 that officers were called around 1 a.m. for a domestic situation in the 4300 block of Timber Ridge Trail SW, near the intersection of 44th Street and Byron Center Avenue.

Two Wyoming Department of Public Safety officers fire shots during the incident, according to a WDPS news release.

There was a brief standoff at an apartment in the Timber Ridge Apartments. One person was arrested on felonious assault and restricting and obstructing an officer charges, according to Kent County Undersheriff Michelle Young. 

No one was injured in the shooting, the release said. 

The Kent County Sheriff's Office is investigating the shooting then will pass the case to the prosecutor's office to determine if it was justified. The two officers will be on administrative leave while the incident is investigated, which is standard protocol. 

A shelter in place order was ordered for the area, but has since been lifted. Authorities also blocked off Timber Ridge Trail at 44th Street, but it has since reopened. There is no longer a threat to the public.

CORRECTION: It was previously reported that when officers arrived on scene they found people arguing in the street. That was incorrect and has since been corrected. We apologize for the error.
