MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — After shots were fired at a house party Saturday, a woman and her 17-year-old son are facing criminal charges.

Muskegon police were called to the 1900 block of Hoyt Street on the south side of the city around 11 p.m. Saturday night and found a residence had been struck by bullets.
When officers arrived at the scene, they didn’t find anyone with injuries. They did find evidence that multiple shots had been fired.

Police say they identified “several witnesses,” but that “most were found to be uncooperative.”

Some witnesses did say people inside of the house and several people standing outside were exchanging gun fire. The sound of “at least two distinctly different sounding guns” was heard.

The alleged shooters were last seen headed south toward Muskegon Heights.

Officers then discovered that a teen party was being held at the house and found evidence of illegal drug use.

A 17-year-old living at the home was detained and charged with obstruction. His 38-year-old mother, who was home at the time of the party and shooting, is also facing criminal charges.

If anyone has information on the incident, call the Muskegon Police Department Tip Line at 231.846.8477 or Silent Observer at 231.722.7463.
