Police stand-off closes a Grand Rapids school
Grand Rapids Public Schools has closed Southwest Community Campus school today because of a police stand-off underway in the neighborhood near the school.
Police are looking for a man who they consider a "person of interest" in connection with the fatal shooting of a woman.
That incident happened around six o’clock this morning. Police have blocked off some streets near the school.
The shooting is not related to the school at all, but administrators are closing the school because the neighborhood may not be safe for students to travel through it, according to John Helmholdt, spokesman for the Grand Rapids Public Schools.
