Michigan State Police have sent out an Amber Alert.

On Nov. 14, around 8 p.m., officers responded to the 1300 block of East Apple Avenue on reports of shots fired. When officers arrived they found two victims had been shot.

Linda Jamerson, 19, of Muskegon and Dajuan Edison, 26, of Muskegon, were found in a store parking lot -- along with a vehicle -- struck by gunfire. Both suffered multiple gunshot wounds -- Jamerson is reportedly in critical condition and Edison is in fair condition.
