On Tuesday, June 12, two men were shot outside Copper Beech Townhomes, an apartment complex near Grand Valley State University’s Allendale campus.  

Ottawa County dispatchers received several calls to report the incident at 11:45 p.m., following the shooting. Sheriff’s deputies and GVSU police arrived on the scene to find the two victims each with a single gunshot wound. One victim suffered a head wound and was taken to the hospital, Ottawa County sheriff’s deputies said. 

“It’s not something you’d expect to happen in Allendale,” said one Copper Beech resident. 

Police are still searching for the gunman and the complex failed to release a statement on the incident.
