GRAND RAPIDS, MI – A man with a concealed-weapons permit shot and killed an alleged robber in an incident outside of a New York Fried Chicken restaurant that ultimately left two men dead, investigators said Thursday.

The two related shootings occurred around 12:45 a.m. Oct. 31 at 734 S. Division Ave.

One of the people killed was the robbery suspect, police have said. His name has not been released.

Family members have identified Domnick Floyd, 23, of Grand Rapids, as the second victim at the shooting scene. They said that police told them that Floyd was picked out for robbery by others after he attended a hip-hop concert at the Intersection nightclub.

Grand Rapids Police have not identified anyone involved in the shootings.

The reporter is most assuredly at an “Obama level” of writing.

And that, folks, is the present state of our MSM.

What does it taste like?
Rat.

what a weird way to write a story.

So, er, who shot the second victim? Why not actually name the restaurant (Obama Fried Chicken?) since you have already mentioned where this happened?

Basically it was a shootout.

Police: Up to 20 rounds fired in double-fatal shooting, innocent victim tried to escape

Police: Pistol permit holder fired multiple times at robber, someone else shoots his friend

As far as I can tell by visiting their website, there are 4 locations for this chain, and they sell the standard fast food stuff.

Why they picked that name is a mystery to me, as I never heard of New York fried chicken and I lived in Manhattan for several years.

The name is to signify that it doesn’t taste like your momma’s chicken or any other chicken you might get locally. maybe....??

actually, the reporting on “MLive” is fairly good. I don’t know the name of the CCW shooter...as it should be.

Actually it’s a flying rat, a pigeon, otherwise known as a New York chicken.

From reading the related stories it appears that there was a 3rd shooter who shot the victim.

I didn’t know New York was known for fried chicken, I thought fried chicken was a Southern thing.

I tell people who love pigeons that they are rats until the grow wings. The reply is,”Yeah, right.”
They I say, “Think about it; have you ever seen a baby pigeon?”

“I never thought about that,” they reply, scratching their head.

I hope the man with the concealed-weapons permit had no more than seven rounds per magazine. It would be a shame to get shafted after a good deed, and even worse for someone who can handle these situations to be disarmed as a convicted felon.

Thanks marktwain and cripplecreek.
...shot and killed an alleged robber in an incident outside of a New York Fried Chicken... at 734 S. Division Ave... Domnick Floyd, 23, of Grand Rapids, as the second victim at the shooting scene... was picked out for robbery by others after he attended a hip-hop concert at the Intersection nightclub.
The Intersection (bar/club) is about a mile from the NYFC. I've been to the former, I have never been to nor will I ever go to the latter, and it has nothing to do with this event.
