Shooting at Grand Rapids: 11 people were shot dead in 4 separate incidents in Michigan



All 11 victims of the shooting were taken to local hospitals after non-life threatening injuries, the Grand Rapids Police Department said in a press release.

The police did not identify any suspects in the four shootings.

Nationally, attacks and killings have increased during the pandemic.

In Grand Rapids, seven of the eleven victims were shot dead in a gunfight in a shisha lounge early Sunday morning, police spokesman Raul Alvarez confirmed to CNN.

About 20 shots were fired at the scene and the shooting victims reportedly did not cooperate with the police, according to the release.

Police agency spokesman Raul Alvarez told CNN that two victims were shot dead in “the same general area”

; when the fatal shooting occurred Friday. They were shot dead not long after a vigil for the victim ended on Friday.

The Grand Rapids Police Department announced on Friday that it would propose a gun buyback program to help reduce violence in the city.

“The department hopes to launch the program – a proactive approach to reducing the number of illegal weapons in the community – in October,” the department said in a press release posted on Facebook.
