GRPD: 2 injured in shooting; no deaths

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police now say no one was killed in a shooting that wounded two people on the city's southeast side.

The shooting happened around 4:20 p.m. in the area of Fuller Avenue at Watkins Street SE, across from Martin Luther King Jr. Park.

Police previously said two people were killed, then said only one was dead. In a press conference shortly after 6:30 p.m., GRPD Sgt. Cathy Williams said no one was killed.

"No one has died here today," Williams said.

She said the confusion was the result of multiple 911 calls saying people had been killed and confusion about an apparently unrelated scene nearby at which a body was found. She apologized for releasing the incorrect information.

Two men were injured in the shooting. The were hospitalized and are expected to survive. Authorities have not released their names or ages.

A neighbor told 24 Hour News 8 that man banged on his door asking for help. That person had an injury to his arm.
