HOLLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Authorities have made a third arrest in the Sept. 11 shooting death of a man outside the Hookah Lounge of Holland.

Demetrius William Viney, Jr. is charged with being a felon in possession of a firearm and being a habitual offender.

Detectives believe Viney, Jr.  had a weapon during the fatal shooting of Anthony Lamb, but he’s not being charged with homicide at this point.

A 27-year-old Fennville man who 24 Hour News 8 identified as Adam Rene Young through state police and county records is also facing charges for lying to a peace officer conducting a violent crime investigation and being a habitual offender.

Detectives said they learned earlier this week that Viney, Jr. was involved in the shooting. With the help of Grand Rapids police, authorities tracked him down and arrested him in Grand Rapids Wednesday evening.

Viney, Jr. has an extensive criminal record.

Lamb’s family has been impacted twice by gun violence this year. His half-sister is Tiana Carruthers, who was one of two survivors in February’s Kalamazoo area shooting rampage that killed six others.

Lamb leaves behind a 9-month-old daughter, Aubree. An online fund has been started to help Lamb’s family cover funeral costs.
