Man to stand trial for deadly shooting on Grandville Avenue SW

A Grand Rapids man has been ordered to stand trial for a shooting on Grandville Avenue last month.

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - A man accused of opening fire on two people outside a Southwest Side hair salon was ordered to stand trial on murder and attempted murder charges for the May 5 shooting.

A Grand Rapids District Court judge on Monday, June 5 determined there was enough evidence against 22-year-old Andy Gonzalez to send the case to Kent County Circuit Court.

He’s accused of gunning down 23-year-old D’Andre Terrell Bullis, who died at the scene. A second man was shot in the leg.

Police say Gonzalez approached the pair on Grandville Avenue near High Street SW and fired several shots before fleeing.  He was arrested a day after the shooting.

Gonzalez was released from the Kent County Jail on Jan. 18 after serving time for delivery/manufacture of heroin and carrying a concealed weapon.

He was arrested by Grand Rapids police in Nov. 2015 on Hall Street west of Ionia Avenue SW. Police recovered heroin, a loaded firearm and the prescription drug alprazolam, court records show.

Gonzalez was sentenced in Feb. 2016 to five months in the Kent County Jail and placed on probation for three years. A condition of probation required that Gonzalez not be involved in gang- related activities.

Gonzalez was brought back into court last summer for violating probation. He was sent back to jail in July, 2016 and released less than five months ago.
