It was a violent weekend in Flint and Genesee County with at least five separate shootings.

A shooting near Flint's Southwestern Academy Sunday morning left seven people injured. They are all expected to survive, police said.

The shooting happened about 2:20 a.m. Sunday.

Police said a group of people were gathered at the school when a fight broke out. 

When police arrived on scene they saw a large group of people and vehicles flee the scene. One man fled on foot and he was arrested after a foot chase with police. Police also recovered a gun at the scene.

A second suspect was arrested a few hours after the incident.

Rayshawn Holmes, 18, was arrested for two counts of assault with intent to murder, carrying a concealed weapon, and felony firearm.

Kisean Gray, 19, was arrested for carrying a concealed weapon, assaulting/resisting/obstructing a police officer, and possession of marijuana on school property.

There was another shooting at the Atherton East Apartments in Flint Friday night. Three people were shot during this incident, police said.

One person was killed and the other two were taken to the hospital.

A weapon was recovered at the scene and three people were brought in for questioning, police said.

There have been no arrests made in relation to this shooting.

A third shooting happened near Gillespie and Industrial avenues in Flint early Sunday morning. The shooting left one person in critical condition.

No arrests have been made for this shooting.

If you have any information about what happened call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

Longtime Flint resident Richie Sharr spends his time selling produce, just yards from where Flint police said a driver was carjacked at gunpoint and then shot by the assailant over the weekend. The incident happened at Brother's Market in Flint.

"It's terrible. What's going on now is, a new generation is coming up now and nobody says no to them and they do whatever they want to do," Sharr said.

Another shooting happened over the weekend at Euclid and Welch. One person suffered non-life threatening injuries after being shot. No arrests have been made in that case.

"The numbers seem high and indeed they are high for a weekend," said Captain Collin Birnie, with the Flint Police Department.

Birnie said the investigation is ongoing and there are no connections between the five shootings.

As for Sharr, he wants the community to come together.

"We gotta work together here, and try to make this town come back to where it used to be. Like I said, there's just way too much violence, way too much violence," he said.
