WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. – One person was killed and two other people were injured in a shooting early Wednesday morning in West Bloomfield.

It happened at a home in the 6000 block of Chase Court, which is in the area of 14 Mile and Halsted roads.

The first 911 call was made at 1:12 a.m. from neighbor who said he heard multiple gunshots outside his home.

A short time later a second 911 call was made from another homeowner on the block who said he had been shot and that he believed he shot another person. A third 911 call was made to report a dark colored Dodge Charger was spotted leaving the area, police said.

Officers arrived at the home on Chase Court and found homeowner, a 30-year-old man, had been shot multiple times. He was transported to a local hospital.

“Officers arrived at the scene. They confirmed that in fact the homeowner had been shot two times,” said West Bloomfield Deputy Police Chief Curt Lawson.

At 1:25 a.m. in the area of 14 Mile and Drake roads, Farmington Hills and West Bloomfield patrol vehicles found a Dodge Charger matching the description of the vehicle seen leaving Chase Court. Police conducted a traffic stop.

The driver exited his vehicle and was detained by officers. The driver, a 47-year-old man, told police he had a gunshot wound to the stomach, police said. He was transported to a local hospital. A handgun was recovered from the vehicle.
