The 20-year-old man was in critical condition in a Grand Rapids hospital as of Thursday afternoon.
The suspect was a passenger in a vehicle stopped in the Leisure Estates Mobile Home Community off Butternut Drive in Holland Township at about 11:30 a.m., said Lt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.
Deputies and detectives made what Bennett called a “high-risk stop” of the red four-door sedan with four people inside because they suspected it was linked to the robbery of a nearby bank on Tuesday. Three of the people in the car complied with police instructions, but the fourth person in the back seat pulled a gun and shot himself in the head.
