Straight Street Murder Vic ID'ed (Black, I presume)

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Grand Rapids Police are investigating a death on the west side last week as a homicide [translation: murder, which is not the same thing, but which is often used synonymously].

Curtis Swift, Jr., 26, was found dead Friday, January 19, just before noon in a home on Straight Street NW. Investigators say that he died from a gunshot wound.

No one else was in the home. An acquaintance of the victim had called police out of concern for his well-being.

GRA: Finally, four days after the body was discovered, an identification.

We also have had, over the weekend, two shooting attempts at moving cars in the southeast part of Grand Rapids and Kentwood. One, on Saturday, resulted in a wound to the neck of a driver on the East Beltline near 28th Street at 3:15 a.m.

The next occurred two days later—an attempt, a short distance away on a highway, near the Cascade exit. No injury from that driveby. Related? Unbelievably, the police say, “No.”
