GRAND HAVEN, Mich.  — The Grand Haven Department of Public Safety says a shooting that occurred Thursday afternoon, leaving a woman critically injured, was “intentionally self-inflicted”.

It happened around 5:43 p.m., in the 1600 block of Slayton Avenue. That’s east of S. Beechstreet and north of Waverly Avenue.

The Grand Haven DPS said in a social-media post around 10:30 p.m. Thursday the 37-year-old Grand Haven woman remained in critical condition. “Our thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.”

Police say the shooting was at a “private residence”.

Officers on-scene provided First Aid, and then the woman was taken to Hackley Hospital by North Ottawa Community Hospital paramedics.

Grand Haven DPS director Jeff Hawke announced right after that in a social-media post that there was no threat to the public.

There was no early indication why the woman allegedly shot herself.
