FOREST HILLS, Mich: Today, around 1:35 pm, a dark colored vehicle drove into the Meadow Brook Elementary School campus at a high rate of speed and brandished what appeared to be a firearm in view of school staff and parents standing together in a small group near the Nature Center. The vehicle quickly drove off. The weapon was not directed toward anyone nor discharged. No one was harmed.

School administration immediately contacted the school resource officer who mobilized other officers and secured the area. At the same time, school administration ordered a “shelter in place” for students and staff in order to keep everyone inside the school and safe. Student learning continued undisrupted.

Kent County Sheriff's Deputies remained at the school through dismissal.

If you have information that could help to move the investigation forward, please call the KCSO at 616-632-6125, or call Silent Observer at 616-774-2345 to report information safely and anonymously.
