GRAND RAPIDS, Mich — One man was hospitalized after being shot at Division Avenue and Cherry Street. Viewers nearby shared images and video with FOX 17 of the grisly scene.

“It was three quick shots,” Andrew Mullen told us he initially attributed the noise to nearby construction. “I originally thought something fell from [a] building and then 30 seconds later a dozen cops went by.”

The streets were blocked off in the area surrounding Degage Ministries, and the Kent County Sheriff’s K-9 Unit were called in to track the suspects.

“The ambulance went by, a fire truck came up. They were gone within a couple minutes,” Mullens said of rescue workers’ response time. “They had the guy loaded up.”

A forensics team has searched the scene, taking items including a bloody shirt in as evidence.
