HOLLAND TWP., MI (WHTC) - An 18-year-old Holland area man is dead, and a 16-year-old boy is in custody after a fatal stabbing attack on Holland’s North Side last night.
According to Ottawa County Sheriff’s Detective Captain Mark Bennett, Japaris Lamar Rodgers was walking with a group along Riley Street near 132nd Avenue around 11 PM when the suspect attacked him and stabbed him several times in the torso. Rodgers was taken to Holland Hospital, where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The suspect, identified as Victor Vison Donaldson, was located at a home in the 14 thousand block of Boar Run Drive, off of 144th Avenue between Riley and Quincy streets, and surrendered without incident.
Bennett added that the Ottawa County Prosecutor's Office will determine if further charges beyond open murder will be filed against Donaldson, and whether he will face such counts as an adult rather than as a juvenile. An investigation continues.
