    Detroit man arrested for attempted murder in Big Rapids

    The Big Rapids Department of Public Safety says a Detroit man has been arrested for attempted murder in the city.

    Early Thursday, MPs said, officers responded to the 1200 block of Perry Street for a report of the shooting.

    They say that the victim reported his contact by an unknown person via Snapchat, and that the victim did not know the account holder.

    Deputies say a short time later, the victim noticed a car following her car. In an attempt to avoid the car she was following, the victim passed through an apartment complex and a shopping center on Berry Avenue.

    The victim says that while he was stopped at a traffic light to exit the shopping center, the suspect’s car stopped on Perry Street and he fired a single shot from a pistol from the car window.
