EAST GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — East Grand Rapids Public Safety officers are investigating Tuesday after finding a dead man at Waterfront Park on Reeds Lake.

They responded just before 9:30 a.m. to a shots fired call at the park, according to a news release.

When they arrived, responding officers proceeded to the end of the long dock on the lake and found the man’s body.

There is no danger to the general public.
