Shootout at High School Graduation Leaves Multiple People Injured

Two people were shot at a Michigan high school on Thursday evening, according to local police.

According to the Kent County Sheriff’s office, a shooting in the parking lot of East Kentwood High School, Kentwood, was reported on Thursday’s evening at about 7:20 p.m. as high school graduates were leaving the stadium after a graduation ceremony.

Suspects then showed up in two white sedans and opened fire, according to Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young, as quoted by WoodTV.

The sheriff said two people were shot, a 16-year-old boy from Texas and a 40-year-old woman from Grand Rapids. They were brought to the hospital and they’re now both in stable condition, although the woman, who was shot in the wrist and the abdomen, is in critical conditions.

The suspects fled the scenes after the shooting. Sheriff LaJoye-Young said police have identified two outstanding suspects, but they believe more people could have fired. She said there was probably no connection between the victims and the shooters.

Police have not provided a description of the suspects or made any reported arrests.
