The cops are being uncooperative with information at this point, but it appears that the owner, a guy named Dave, was the victim.
Dave runs a nice store with a very good selection.

KENTWOOD -- Police are investigating a shooting and robbery of an employee at Apparitions Comics and Books, at 2757 Ridgemoor Drive SE.
Authorities were releasing little information about the 7 p.m. Friday shooting. The victim's name and condition were not released, nor were Kentwood police giving out any information about the suspect.
The victim was taken to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital.
The store is located off 28th Street near Woodland Mall.
carlgiannini: All I wanted to know is what trades have been released. Now I've committed to spend an extra hundred or two on comics. What happened here?
The Lord Retail: I happened. Lord Retail happened to you. I'm sorry friend, but I simply can't turn it off..
That totally sucks. Here's hoping it wasn't a dispute over some bullshit comic related thing. The only thing worse than being shot would be being shot for not buying a box full of some dudes old Youngblood comics.
wow do any of our Bendis boarders shop there?
The of the K-MEN, current location the RK Thread
hope the guy pulls through
I have good friends in and around Grand Rapids. This kinda sucks.
Any way you can keep an eye on this and see how this guy is doing?
He's one of our own. Right? So, maybe there should be a fund-raiser. Most comic shops don't offer medical insurance to their employees, after all.
The owner is in critical condition at this time.
I'll provide updates as they become available.
