DETROIT – One person was fatally shot, another was injured and an intruder was stabbed to death when three people broke into a home in Detroit’s Bagley neighborhood over a liquor debt, according to police Chief James Craig.
Police said three men broke into a home around 1 p.m. Monday in the 18000 block of Santa Rosa Drive in Detroit because of a $20 liquor debt. There were three people inside the home at the time of the break-in, according to authorities.
A 17-year-old boy inside the home was shot and killed, police said. A 26-year-old suffered a graze wound, Craig said. Officials said the third person inside the home was not injured.
“Upon forcing entry one person produced a gun and shot someone,” Detroit police Capt. Derrick Maye said. “One of the residents retaliated by stabbing that person.”
The intruders fled the scene in a vehicle that was later found a few blocks away at Seven Mile Road and San Juan Drive, according to authorities.
Craig said one of the intruders, a 32-year-old man, was found dead from stab wounds at the location where police found the vehicle.
Police said they are still searching for one suspect in connection with the case.
