Gun incident crowded pier

A large group of teens gathers on Grand Haven's south pier prior to the Fourth of July.

“We get fights all the time during the summer months, especially down by the waterfront,” said Capt. Clint Holt of the Grand Haven Department of Public Safety. “Pulling a gun is a more serious matter.”
