GRA: All nigs. Look at those boons strutting around. STILL no arrests, though the cops ID'ed the owner of one of the two cars involved. The blacks really clam up on this stuff.

( GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. — Deputies have released photos of the suspects in the shooting that took place outside East Kentwood High School last week.

The Kent County Sheriff’s Office (KCSO) says they hope someone may be able to identify the people depicted in the photos.

A total of eight suspects are believed to have been involved in the shooting, deputies say.

KCSO also asks witnesses to submit photos and/or videos of the incident to their evidence submission portal.

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Two men arrested are believed to be responsible for a killing, four armed robberies and a car theft in metro Grand Rapids — a crime spree that lasted five hours, Kent County authorities say.

It ended with a chase and crash in the early hours of Wednesday.

Joseph Wilder, 50, of Kentwood, was a married father of three. He worked as a truck driver and was the director of his church choir.

“He was easy to love. He had a lot to give,” Wilder’s brother Phillip Wilder said. “I think I cried all my tears out. I’m just numb. I’m in shock. It’s my baby brother.”

Around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Joseph Wilder was making a deposit at a Huntington National Bank ATM on S. Division Avenue near M-6 in Byron Township — about a mile from his home — when he was shot and killed. Wilder’s pickup ended up across the street but it’s not clear how.

“It appears as though the shots were fired as the man was trying to leave,” Kent County Sheriff Michelle LaJoye-Young said. “It was a very dangerous night in the greater Kent County area.”

The spree had started shortly before 10 p.m. when robbers fired shots in the 600 block of Leonard Street NW. A clerk at the Family Dollar says the shots were fired inside the store. No one was hurt.
(GRA:Close to my house--I heard the sirens.)

Around 11:30 p.m., an hour after Wilder was killed, thieves stole an Audi SUV on S. Division Avenue north of Martin Luther King Jr. Street SE in Grand Rapids. Then, authorities say, there were two more armed robberies using that SUV — one around 1:15 a.m. on Ann Street NE between Monroe and Plainfield avenues in Grand Rapids and the other around 1:30 a.m. at 28th Street and E.Paris Avenue in Kentwood.

(GRA:They going from the south end of town,to the north,back south again and then to the north at Alpine Nw--insane!)

Police later chased the stolen SUV through Grand Rapids and Walker. It ultimately crashed around 2:15 a.m. Wednesday in an Alpine Township yard at Alpine Avenue and 4 Mile Road, just 30 feet from a home.

The police chase ended in a yard at Alpine Avenue and 4 mile road, 30 feet from a home. (May 25, 2022)
The suspects took off running. The sheriff said police used a drone and tracking dogs to catch them.

The sheriff says it appears from surveillance video that the two suspects, men ages 20 and 22, were involved in the entire spree.

“I hope that it is the guys that they got, because they don’t need to be out running around, doing this to somebody else,” Phillip Wilder said. “I think they just had evil in their heart and they were going to do something terrible and it just happened to be the wrong place, wrong time.”

“Why?” he wondered. “Why would you not sit down and think about how much somebody else’s life means before you just go do that? All the people that it affects, all the people that it hurts. It’s so senseless.”

Detectives are working with prosecutors to determine possible charges. The names of the men will be released after they are formally charged.

“Every time this happens, the entire community feels a loss of security and we’re seeing that in every place right now,” LaJoye-Young said.

GRA:Now,there's a one in a million chance these thugs are White,but I wouldn't bet on it.I'll post an update after an ID.

Police said,"both men have criminal histories and will be arraigned tomorrow."

Sounds so familiar.
