1 Hurt in Shooting at Davenport University

CALDEDONIA, MICH. - Kent County Sheriff's Department deputies are investigating an early morning shooting at Davenport University's main campus in Caledonia.

Police were called to the campus just before 2:30 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, 2016 on a report of someone being shot.

Deputies say it started in a dorm room at South Hall, a residence building. They say four non-students were involved in a fight with two students.

During the altercation, one of the non-students discharged a weapon. A bullet penetrated a wall and hit a student who was not involved in the altercation. The victim was taken to the hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.

The victim was treated and released. 

Students received a call about the shooting around 3:30 a.m., with a second call sent out around 7 a.m. saying there appeared to be no apparent danger. Key card access is required into residence halls and onto each floor.

Deputies say this is the first time an incident of this nature has happened at the university. They added that the shooting appears to be an isolated incident and there's no reason to believe the public is in any danger.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Kent County Sheriff's Department at 616-632-6100 or Silent Observer at 616-774-2345.
