Grand Rapids man arraigned after shooting at officers, stabbing police K9
24-year-old described as “extremely dangerous” by GRPD Chief.
A man faces years in prison after stabbing a police K9 and barricading himself inside a home for more than six hours Sunday night.
The Grand Rapids Police Department said Wednesday that 24-year-old Terry-Junior-Warren has been arraigned on multiple felony charges—including Assault with Intent to Murder, home invasion, and causing serious injury to a police animal.
Authorities say, Warren fired several gunshots at police officers Sunday night during an hours-long-standoff.
When law enforcement sent a K9 into the house, police say the suspect stabbed the dog eight times. The animal survived.
According to the GRPD, Warren is currently being held at the Kent County Correctional Facility.
Grand Rapids Police Chief Eric Winstrom released this statement Wednesday:
“I am very proud of the actions of our officers,” said Chief Eric Winstrom. “They showed exceptional professionalism and patience over many hours to encourage Warren to surrender even while he was shooting both inside and outside the house. This is an extremely violent individual in a high-pressure situation.”
