GALESBURG, Mich. — Late Sunday afternoon, the Kalamazoo County Sheriff's office responded to a report of a minor with a gun in Galesburg City Park on East Michigan Avenue. The sheriff's office can confirm that at least one shot was fired on their way to the scene.

Once arriving on scene, deputies secured the handgun and found out that when word spread of the minor having a gun in the park, other minors tried to take it from him. The gun was discharged at that time.

It is unsure whether this was accidental or intentional. There was no one injured during this incident, which remains under investigation.
