GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The Grand Rapids Police say no suspects are in custody yet, following a shooting Friday night that they're investigating as an "attempted murder".

Sergeant Cathy Williams told FOX 17 on Saturday evening that the GRPD is still searching for a suspect, "but no one is in custody...and no warrants have been issued." Meanwhile, the 18-year-old victim, from Grand Rapids, is being treated at a hospital for "life-threatening" injuries, after he was shot in the head.

Officers responded to the scene on Temple Street near Eastern Avenue shortly after 8 p.m. Friday. The perimeter was set up in an area bounded by Adams Street on the south, Eastern Avenue on the west, Hall Steet on the north, and Marshall Avenue on the east. Oakhill Cemetery is west of that location.

GRPD Lieutenant Mark Ostapowicz tells FOX 17 the shooting suspect took off running.

Police say there is no suspect description, and they've been questioning witnesses- but they don't know yet what led to the incident. 

The perimeter was taken down late Friday night, and the all-clear was given.
