Was everyone involved sharing any common racial identifier?

Just a thought.

Given the neighborhood, likely Hispanic. Probably not the answer you were looking for.

Sounds like more of Ollie Norths gangstas are fighting a turf war.

You don't sell crack on the Ollie North gangs "turf" without a major donation to the Republican Party. Freelancing is stupid in a republican "controlled" town!

Drive by shootings happen when people mess with Ollie and Georges profit margins!

BTW...the red white and blue "elephant" is their gang sign!

Look for it!

ICE - GR is a distribution point for illegals and the Mexican Mafia is taking control from the coyotes in place. Except more of the same and regularly, unfortunately.

Sounds like you have been inhaling a few too many fumes coming from those chemical plants in midland.

this is not worth the news. who cares if drug dealers are shooting at each other.
what the heck were they doing on the porch anyways. If they had jobs they would be working and they would not get shot. So get a job and stay alive.

A review of the comments left here appear to be way off subject. It doesn't matter what ethnic background the suspects were. There was a time when a story like this would be shocking, but they aren't anymore. There are certain portions of the City of Grand Rapids that are more prone to this type of behavior. Just because of ethnicity or geographical area, doesn't mean that this behavior is acceptable to the community. It's still a crime and most of you have forgotten that people were injured for doing something Americans should have the freedom to do-sit on their porch at night and enjoy the last of the summers evening weather. I pray for those injured and I pray that the police catch those that did the shootings. By a community responding with such comments as have been left here, racial steroetyping DOES exist.

Blame the Government and Catholic Church. They both seem to think it's okay to let the Constitution burn while we allow our borders to be over run and the country invaded by illegals. To say nothing of the recent use of tax payer money to bail out specific corporations. Constitution?? What Constitution! My friends, the day draws near when blood needs to be shed on Capital Hill and the entire group replaced with those who have good strong conservative values.

Wow..... absolutely amazing observation. theres a topic on a drive by, and we got some neo-nazi conservative d-bag that goes off on a tangent about things that frankly, no one cares to hear about... especially from some stranger on the internet.

stick to the topic people...jesus.
