UPDATE: 2 people arrested
The shooting happened around 8:40 p.m. Monday (Oct. 18) at the Marathon gas station on West Warren Avenue near the Southfield Freeway on Detroit’s west side, according to authorities.
Detroit police released video that shows two men ambushing a couple who were sitting inside a car at a gas pump. Police believe there is one piece of evidence that can lead to the arrest of the shooters. You can see the video in Shawn Ley’s story posted above.

Benson Lindsey, 22, and his girlfriend were killed in the shooting, officials said. Their 9-month-old son was also in the car at the time, but he was not harmed.
Police said the couple had their second child one month ago: a daughter who was born prematurely and is still in the hospital.
Lindsey’s mother, Candace Lindsey, told the community that the gunmen took away her only son and left his children without parents.
“They took everything I had,” she said. “My son -- my only baby God allowed me to have.”
Detroit homicide detectives are fanning out across the city’s west side, trying to find the people responsible.
