GRPD investigating overnight shooting on Knapp St.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- A 31 year old woman is dead in an overnight shooting on Grand Rapids' northeast side.

Officers got the call at 4:08 a.m. Friday from the driver of a street-sweeping truck, who reportedly found the victim lying in the road at Knapp Street and Truxton Drive, just west of Fuller Avenue.

The street sweeper told police he saw the suspect shoot the woman then leave in a dark colored vehicle.

Police have found evidence tied to the shooting. They're canvassing the neighborhood to try and find out if anyone nearby saw something.

Investigators say they're looking for a dark colored vehicle, but they're getting conflicting reports from neighbors about what type of vehicle it was.

The woman's identity is being withheld until her family is notified. 

If you have any information, contact the Grand Rapids Police Department at (616) 456-3400 or Silent Observer at (616) 774-2345.
