On July 18th 2021, Kalamazoo Public Safety officers were in the 1500 block of N Church St. on an unrelated call for service when multiple volleys of gun fire were heard. One officer on foot observed what they believed to be an involved vehicle and upon making contact, observed a firearm inside. The occupants were safely detained as part of the investigation. While checking for victims in neighboring yards, several shell casings were located that appeared to be recently fired and were seized as evidence.
During a search of the involved vehicle, 3 illegal firearms were located, one of which was discovered to be stolen from the state of Texas. As result of the investigation, a 33 year old Kalamazoo resident and a 26 year old Kentwood resident were arrested on multiple firearms and narcotic related charges.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Kalamazoo Public Safety at (269)488-8911 or Silent Observer at (269)343-2100 or www.kalamazoosilentobserver.com.
