“It is sad to say, but Detroit is not immune to mass shootings,” Detroit police Chief James White said. “We understand these numbers help make national media headlines, but to us, each one represents a person who is someone’s mother or father, a son or daughter, a loved one, or a friend.

“The two mass shootings were isolated and not random. I have full confidence in the men and women of the Detroit Police Department and their ability to get these violent offenders off our streets. Our thoughts and prayers are with the surviving victims and their families.”

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Detroit Police Homicide at 313-596-2260, or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP to remain anonymous.
