Just before 1:30 Saturday morning Grand Rapids Police were called to the area of Franklin and Division with reports of people shooting at each other.
When police arrived they found one person had been shot.
The shooting victim was brought to St. Mary's Hospital and rushed into surgery with life threatening injuries.
Family and friends of the victim showed up at the hospital, and while they were still there began to fight.
Police, many of which were still at the shooting scene, rushed to the hospital to break up the fight.
In a second shooting, also along Division avenue last night, a man was shot in the throat. Police said that the second shooting is a separate incident from the first shooting.
A fight in the parking lot of the Auto Zone, on Division avenue just south of Hall street, broke out around 3 a.m. Saturday.
That victim was brought to the hospital and is in stable condition.
Police are continuing to investigate both shootings.
