HOLLAND, Mich. — Holland police are investigating a shooting and recovered weapons in two separate incidents Saturday.

Officers were informed about 12:10 a.m. of several stolen vehicles from the Kent County area heading into the Holland area, a news release said.

Holland police observed several vehicles driving recklessly on the south side of Holland, coming onto Washington Avenue from US-31.

They tried to stop one of the vehicles while other officers tried to get into position to intercept the vehicles.

One of the stolen vehicles pulled off the road and two individuals fled on foot.

Both had handguns when they ran, with one of them throwing the gun right before police caught him, and the other still had his gun when he was caught.

The stolen vehicle and one of the individuals were turned over to the Grand Rapids Police Department.

The other was lodged at the Ottawa County Jail on charges of carrying a concealed weapon, receiving and concealing stolen property and resist and obstruction of an officer.

Soon after, Holland police were dispatched to a shots fired call about 3:20 a.m. in the 500 block of West 24th Street, where a home was hit by bullets.

Officers found three rounds had been fired into a house, with one bullet going through a window into a bedroom.

The shooter was believed to have fled on foot, but limited information was available.

No suspects had been taken into custody as of Monday.

The incidents do not appear to be related and are still under investigation.
