GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Grand Rapids Police say someone fired shots from a passing vehicle Thursday night in the same Burton Heights neighborhood where two people were shot Wednesday night. The latest incident occurred in the 2000 block of Towner Avenue SW.

And once again, the bullets fired on Towner Avenue struck a house, according to the GRPD. That’s about a half-dozen streets away from where shots were fired into a house on Quigley Boulevard SW the night before. But this time, no one was injured.

A five-year-old girl and a 17-year-old boy were struck by bullets in the Wednesday night shooting on Quigley Boulevard SW, near Buchanan Avenue.

Police tell FOX 17 they are investigating whether the two incidents one night apart might have any connection.

Police say the shots fired Thursday night on Towner Avenue came from a “smaller dark vehicle”.

No other details were immediately available, as police continued their investigation.
