DETROIT – Two men were shot early Tuesday morning when they were boxed in after using an ATM at a Detroit bank.

The shooting happened at the corner of W. Chicago Street and Schaefer Highway at about 3:30 a.m.

Police said the two men went to use the ATM at the Comerica Bank and were robbed at gunpoint. Several suspects approached the victims as they sat in the parking lot in a dark colored SUV. 

“They (victims) say they had seen this vehicle driving around in the area and once they parked their car and got out to go do their transaction at the ATM, they got boxed in,” Officer John Serda said.

Police said the victims were forced to the ground. The suspects then demanded money and shot both men. 

Both the 36-year-old and 48-year-old victims are listed in temporary serious condition.

A woman and a 2-year-old child were in the victim's SUV at the time of the shooting. They were unharmed.

The suspects are described as three to four black men dressed in all dark clothing.. They were possibly driving an older model of a black Chevrolet Tahoe.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Detroit Police Department.
