Grand Rapids Community College officials posted a campus alert on the college website after a woman reported that she was confronted by a man with a gun around 3:15 a.m. Saturday morning inside the Bostwick Parking Ramp.
She told police that after leading her onto the Ransom level of the Bostwick Parking Ramp, he claimed he was a hitman and that he had been hired to kill her. The suspect then reportedly told the woman he did not want to hurt her and fired one shot into the ground of the parking structure. He then escorted her back out of the ramp and left her. The suspect was last seen headed south on Ransom Avenue.
The Grand Rapids Community College campus was closed at the time, and no students, staff, or faculty were in the area. No damage was done to the parking structure.
GRCC police are referring all inquiries to the Grand Rapids police, as the report was filed there.
Grand Rapids police could not be reached for comment at this time. Check back for updates.
