JAMESTOWN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities say a Hudsonville-area man was hospitalized in critical condition Tuesday night after his roommate allegedly shot him.

The shooting happened at a manufactured home in the 2100 block of Rockwood Drive. That’s south of Riley Street in Jamestown Township, south of Hudsonville.

Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office Capt. Mark Bennett said neighbors called 911 after hearing at least one shot around 9:50 p.m. Upon their arrival, first responders found a 29-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the torso. He was conscious when first responders arrived but his condition deteriorated quickly and he was rushed to the hospital. He was in “very critical” condition and undergoing surgery late Tuesday night.

Wednesday, a family member identified the victim to 24 Hour News 8 as Bradley Keeny. The family member said Keeny had undergone surgery earlier in the day and was in a drug-induced coma. Thursday, authorities said he remained in critical condition.

Bennett said the suspect, later identified as Ryan James Terbeek, was also found at the scene of the shooting and arrested. He cooperated with deputies.

Terbeek, 38, was charged Thursday with assault with intent to murder, according to Bennett. His bond was set at $200,000.

Terbeek and Keeny live together at the scene of the shooting, Bennett said. He was not certain how long they had been roommates. He said the shooting seemed to have stemmed from an argument, though it’s not yet clear about what. It’s also not yet known whether alcohol was a factor.

A witness told 24 Hour News 8 he saw a man drive up in a car, go into the home, at which point he heard arguing and two gunshots. Shortly thereafter, the witness said, an ambulance arrived and took the victim away.

The firearm believed to have been used in the shooting was recovered at the scene, Bennett said. The shooting is believed to be an isolated incident, he continued, and there was no danger to the public.
