Police say family dispute led to shooting death of Muskegon woman

The incident happened Thursday around 2:45 p.m. near the corner of Laketon Avenue and Getty Street.

MUSKEGON, Mich. — Law enforcement in Muskegon say a 30-year-old woman is dead after an alleged family dispute Thursday afternoon.

The incident happened around 2:45 p.m. near the corner of Laketon Avenue and Getty Street, authorities said. 

Muskegon police say they arrived to find the Muskegon woman had been shot and killed. 

They took a 60-year-old Egleston Township man into custody on charges related to the incident, which they are calling an isolated incident related to a family dispute. 

A neighbor told 13 ON YOUR SIDE she's sick of the violence. 

"It's, you know, I shouldn't have to worry about that. There used to be an ice cream truck that drove through here. He doesn't even come around no more because of the violence," neighbor Joni Gale said.

"You know, it's not fair. It's not right. It's not right for the kids. So we were growing up now. Something needs to change. And Muskegon needs to make that change, but it's going to take everybody to make that change." 

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information on the shooting is asked to contact the Muskegon Police Department at 231-724-6750 or Silent Observer at 231-722-7463.
