Amazingly... and I'm really shocked, because this is very close to my home, less than 6 blocks... but I checked the WOOD.tv site, looking for info on the Elizabeth Avenue case and see MY immediate area has a murder (just a short time ago).

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Grand Rapids police are investigating after they say a woman was found dead outside a home early Saturday morning.
Police say they were called to the 400 block of Lincoln Avenue NW around 1:04 a.m. after someone reported hearing four gunshots in the area. When they arrived, they found an adult female dead outside a home. Authorities were unable to provide any information about her age or identity.
Authorities do not have any suspects at this point.
Grand Rapids police say the department’s major case team is handling the investigation. Anyone with information is asked to call the Grand Rapids Police Department at 616.456.3400 or Silent Observer at 616.774.2345.
GRA: Also tonight, an infant and mother were shot in a car on the opposite side of GR, but police say THAT was related to an armed robbery on Leonard and Alpine (my area again). This is a crime wave that Grand Rapids West Side has never seen.
More details on THIS murder tomorrow. Horrible city.
[N.S. Last year, a news story reported that Grand Rapids was the “fastest growing urban area” in Michigan!]

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Grand Rapids Police are investigating after a woman was found dead outside a home on the Westside of Grand Rapids early Saturday morning.
Police were called out on a report of "sounds of gunshots" in the Lincoln Avenue near Bridge Street area around 1 a.m Saturday, March 18. When officers arrived on the scene, they found Laurie Kay Lundeburg, 51, of Grand Rapids, with multiple gunshot wounds dead outside in front of a home.
Police do not have any suspect information at this time.
GRA: Robbery or domestic, that is the question. This one seems more domestic, but it IS a horrible area, so a break-in by ghetto filth cannot be dismissed. Coin flip here.

AND THE (MURDER) BEAT GOES ON...
If we're not careful, we're going to be called Little Chicago--if this keeps up.
GRAND RAPIDS, MI - Police are investigating after a body was found near the medical mile downtown.
At approximately 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, March 18, dispatch reports indicated a person was possibly shot at the corner of Lafayette Avenue and Hastings Street.
Police at the scene would not confirm that a person was shot, but the Grand Rapids Police Forensics Unit was seen covering a body.
Traffic in both directions of Lafayette Avenue were closed.
GRA: Another slummy area of GR. Someone walking where they shouldn't be.

On the Laurie Kay Lundeburg killing, police say “no suspects” in her murder. The unfortunate white woman (pic of her on WOOD-TV via Facebook) now it would appear, is a victim of a break-in and murder, in my humble opinion. No talk of a husband or boyfriend being a suspect and her house—in the 400 block of Lincoln NW, is tucked away in a disgustingly black and Mexican dominated area. It's actually a dead-end street, and the few businesses that exist nearby, are usually associated with low income areas—pawn shops, check cashing, and used clothing and furniture stores. And Mexican dives that pass for restaurants.
The area may have done her in. I'll pass info, as I receive it. My guess is that a Mexican or group of them will be ID'ed, if anyone is found at all.
