HOLLAND TWP., MI (WHTC) - A 42-year-old Caucasian man who allegedly fired shots in a North Side neighborhood on Friday night was apprehended at his home about 16 hours after the incident. A tip led deputies to the residence of the suspect around 11:40 AM on Saturday, and the man surrendered without incident.

He had apparently eluded a police perimeter search for four hours after the shooting, which apparently came following a domestic dispute between the suspect and his parents. The man stormed out of the parents' residence off of 132nd Avenue between Riley and James streets, carrying a shotgun, and turned around and fired off several rounds, striking a neighbor's house, but wounding nobody. The parents were taken to an undisclosed location for their safety; the search for the suspect was suspended after midnight.

The man will remain in the Ottawa County Jail through the weekend, pending an expected Monday video arraignment in Holland District Court. His name will not be officialy disclosed until then.
