Norton Shores – Western Michigan police say they’ve made an arrest in the fatal crossbow shooting of a 20-year-old man.

Norton Shores police said they arrested a Grant man Thursday on a charge of open murder in Marcus Olmstead’s death.

Police say the 20-year-old suspect knew Olmstead and the shooting wasn’t a random act. The suspect’s identity is being withheld pending his arraignment.

Olmstead’s twin brother found him Wednesday in the driveway of his Norton Shore home, with a crossbow bolt in his torso.

Emergency workers tried to revive Olmstead but he died at the scene in the city just south of Muskegon along Lake Michigan.

Olmstead’s stepmother says he had returned from a friend’s house hours before his death and had been waiting for a girl he had messaged.
