“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.”
A man from Macomb County was taken into custody, authorities said.
Police believe they recovered the gun that was used in the shooting.
The investigation continues.
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.
