Suspect in party shooting expected in court
KENTWOOD, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We're waiting to see if the suspect accused of shooting five people at a Kentwood graduation party will be in court Tuesday to face charges.
Officers arrested him Monday night in Grand Rapids.
They say he showed up uninvited to a graduation party on Farmview Lane Sunday night and opened fire.
Five teenagers were injured.
At last word one was listed in critical condition, but all five are expected to survive.
Phil Martin was throwing the party for his daughter Alicia. He says he jumped out of bed when he heard the commotion.
“They were screaming. One of the young men picked up the girl that couldn't move because she was just terrified,” said Phil Martin.
We'll have more on the charges the suspect is facing once he appears in court.
Investigators say they believe there are several people with information about the shooting and they're asking them to come forward.
