Relatives say they want justice for a woman and her grandson shot and killed in Grand Rapids.
Friday night there was a vigil for 46-year-old Germaine Grown and her 2-year-old grandson King Talbert outside her house on Montgomery Street. When her husband Darrell Brown came home
Wednesday afternoon he says Germaine was already dead and the boy was dying. At first, he didn’t comprehend what he was seeing.
“I actually thought the boy was sleeping,” he says. "I had no idea both were shot. I just thought she had hit her head and passed out.”
Relatives say they don’t know who would shoot the woman and the child, but Darrell Brown says he has some suspicions. He says he wonders if he was the intended target but he was not home and his wife and grandson were.
"Whatever was on his mind, it looked like it was against me," he says
The family is asking anyone with helpful information to come forward.
“We just want justice,” says cousin Shantell Bulloch. “Justice does need to be served for them. They did not deserve this. “
“Nobody deserves this,” says Darrell Brown. “Nobody. Especially a little baby.”
