UNDATED (WHTC) - Perhaps it was the weather, perhaps it was circumstances, but two college cities in Michigan were the scenes of shootings over the weekend, with one victim from the Lakeshore.
The first occurred on Friday evening at an off-campus apartment unit in East Lansing, where two 20-year-old Michigan State University students were victims of what was “not a random act,” according to authorities. Corbin Holwerda of Grand Haven was treated for wounds at Sparrow Hospital and released, but Dominique Nolff of Middleville died of his injuries. A black man in his 20’s is being sought in connection with the incident, and investigators are hoping that images from surveillance cameras at the Cedar Village complex can help track down the suspect.
The second came on Saturday night in Big Rapids, where a 20-year-old suburban Detroit man was taken into custody after wounding an unnamed Ferris State student at an off-campus apartment unit. DeCory Downing was apprehended after a standoff following the shooting; the victim was treated at Spectrum-Butterworth Hospital and released. Downing awaits arraignment in Big Rapids District Court.
