Suspect in Allendale shooting that hurt four arraigned

The suspect has been identified as a 23-year-old man from the Muskegon area. He is not affiliated with Grand Valley State University.

ALLENDALE, Mich. — A man was arraigned Wednesday for a shooting incident that left four people hurt near the campus of Grand Valley State University earlier this month. 

The man was identified as DeJarion Blackshire, a 23-year-old from Muskegon. He faces a charge of assault with intent to murder and a felony firearm charge. The Sheriff's Office said he is not a student at GVSU nor is he affiliated with the school. 

Authorities say detectives have been working to find out who was responsible for the gunfire at Canvas Apartments in Allendale since the incident on Sept. 18. 

Four people, including two GVSU students, and several vehicles were hit by gunfire, authorities said. All victims have since been released from the hospital. 

On Tuesday, the Ottawa County Prosecuting Attorney's Office issued a warrant for the suspect in this case. 

Detectives worked with the Muskegon Major Case Initiative Team to arrest Blackshire Tuesday afternoon.

Blackshire is lodged at the Ottawa County Jail with bond set at $500,000 cash/surety.

This case remains under investigation and additional charges are possible. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Sheriff's Office or Silent Observer at 1-877-88-SILENT (745368) or mosotips.com
