Officials said the men opened fire on the driver of a silver Saturn, which came to a stop at a funeral home across the street.

The driver was killed, according to authorities. His family identified him as Alex Minor, of River Rouge.

The owner of the gas station, Emad Saleh, said the gunmen then sped up the street to get to Minor’s girlfriend, who was in another car with children inside.

She is expected to survive after the attack, and the children are OK, police said.
