Another Isolated Incident: Unarmed College Student Shot in the Chest During Drug Raid


Police shot an unarmed Grand Valley State student in the chest during a drug raid on his apartment last night.

The police haven't said what they were looking for, other than that the raid was part of a drug investigation. They also haven't said if they found any illicit drugs, or what caused the officer to discharge his weapon.

The 20-year-old man is in stable condition at a Grand Rapids, Michigan hospital.

A police spokesman told the Grand Rapid News that the shooting was an "isolated incident."

Thanks to Nick Cheolas for the tip.
