GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — A man with a concealed-carry license exchanged fire with an armed robber outside a Grand Rapids laundromat.  The robbery happened late this afternoon outside the Curtis Cleaners at 450 Michigan Street, NE.  Grand Rapids Police tell FOX 17 that several gunshots were fired when a Good Samaritan with a concealed-carry license pulled a gun on the suspect after the robbery.

Grand Rapids Police set up a perimeter in a nearby wooded area and brought in a K-9 sniffing dog to track the robber.  Police are still searching for the gunman.
