FARMINGTON, Mich. – Farmington police are investigating a shooting which happened at about 8:20 p.m. Wednesday at the Zap Zone location on Grand River Avenue.

Investigators said officers were dispatched to Zap Zone after numerous 911 calls reporting gunfire with potentially three victims.

Officers arrived to the scene within minutes and found numerous shell casings in the parking lot and many customers getting into their cars and leaving.

Upon making entry into Zap Zone, officers were unable to locate any victims or evidence that anyone was hit by gunfire.

“Although the investigation is ongoing, it is clear after reviewing the surveillance video at the business that the intended victim of the shooting was targeted. Detectives are continuing to work with the business reviewing additional surveillance video and collecting evidence,” Farmington Public Safety Director Ted Warthman said.

So far, no victims have come forward or been located.

6 men wanted

Police are looking for six men, who entered a black Dodge Ram and drove from the scene eastbound on Grand River Avenue.

“It was very shocking that it happened here in Farmington. We usually don’t have these type of incidents. And by the grace of God, so far, we don’t have any victims which is a good sign,” said Warthman. “You hope and pray you that go to what we consider family places and hope your family is safe. It’s really eye-opening that individuals would go to this point to try to settle some type of argument.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call Detective Matt Miracle at 248-474-5500 ext. 2239.
