GRAND RAPIDS, Mich – The Grand Rapids Police Department’s Major Case Team continues to investigate a shooting that happened Tuesday night on the city’s southwest side.

Just before 9:00 p.m., officers were called to the 100 block of Dickinson Street SW on a report people were harassing a 911 caller who reported hearing gunfire in the area.

While officers were on scene, gunshots were fired in the vicinity of an uniformed police Sergeant searching the area on foot.
