The shooting happened on Evergreen Road between Lyndon Street and Schoolcraft.

Officials say there was some sort of argument going on between the three men around 9 p.m. Wednesday (June 1) night when one of the men allegedly pulled out a gun and shot the other two before taking off on foot.

“The shooter was in the vehicle with the individuals who were shot,” said Detroit Police Commander Arnold Williams. “He actually shot one while he was in the vehicle and got out and shot the other.”

Detroit police have the help of Michigan State Police, their K-9 and helicopters as they continue to search for the suspect.
