GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Reports of possible shots fired in or around the Cherry Street Health Center led to a heavy police presence in Grand Rapids Wednesday.

Officers were called to the clinic, located at 550 Cherry Street SE around 10 a.m. on reports of possible gunfire. However, police believe witnesses were confused and the incident actually involved a mentally disturbed person throwing rocks.

Officers are still investigating the situation and taking every precaution to ensure no armed shooter is inside the facility. Drivers are encouraged to avoid the area as the investigation continues.
