MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — Muskegon police say they have arrested a person involved in a break-in, false imprisonment and shooting.

The break-in happened around 9:18 a.m. Tuesday a house in the 1900 block of Leahy Street, according to the Muskegon Police Department. Police said Wednesday that the initial report was of armed subjects forcing their way into a house, restraining to adults, and then “removing a 22-year-old male resident against his will.”

Officers said Tuesday they found an uninjured 17-year-old when they responded to the house on Leahy Street. The suspects were already gone.

Around the same time, there were shots fired about a mile away near the 1800 block of South Getty Street, according to police.

Officers found a 22-year-old gunshot victim with a single gunshot wound to the shoulder. She was taken to Mercy Health Hackley Campus, where she was treated for a non-life threatening injury and then released, police say.

Authorities said the incidents were related.

Their investigation led police to a home in the 1900 block of Terrace Street in the same neighborhood around 5 p.m. Tuesday. There, they arrested a 29-year-old Muskegon resident on several outstanding warrants, a charge of assault with a deadly weapon as a fourth-time habitual offender, false imprisonment, several weapons charges and for being a parole absconder. More charges may be forthcoming, police said.

Police also confiscated a handgun and long gun at the Terrace Street residence.

The status of the 22-year-old who was reportedly removed from the Leahy Street residence is unknown.
