Police searching for suspected shooter

DETROIT - A man and a woman were fatally shot Monday during a family dispute on Detroit's east side, according to police.

Witnesses said they heard several gunshots near the area of Gunston Avenue and College Street.

"I heard there shots fired," said Mike Bridges, who called 911. "I looked down my living room window and saw some kids running down the street."

Police said a family dispute escalated and a family member pulled out a gun. The gunman fired shots inside the house, killing a man and a woman, both in their 30s, in front of children.

"I guess they were family members," Bridges said. "They looked like they were trying to perform CPR and I called 911 again and said, 'We need an ambulance.'"

Police are searching for the suspected shooter.
