3 wounded in west Detroit drive-by shootings


Detroit Police are working to find suspects in two passing shootings this week on the west side of the city that injured three people.

At around 5 p.m. on Monday, a driver and passenger on the 18,000 block of Greenfield noticed a red Chevrolet Equinox following them, investigators said in a statement.

When the driver pulled the Ford Fusion into a driveway, someone in the Chevy shot the car several times, according to the publication.

The passenger, identified as a 24-year-old woman, was beaten. Medics took her to a hospital, where she was in severe condition, police reported.

The gunfire also hit a 30-year-old woman who drove south in the green field. She was hospitalized in a temporarily severe condition.

The Chevy fled with two men who were believed to be in their twenties. One has been described as about 5-foot-5, 150 pounds, with a medium complexion and brown eyes. The other was described as 5-foot-10, 175 pounds, with a short afro and dark eyes.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police Department Eighth District at (313) 596-5840. Anonymous tips can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

In another incident, a 33-year-old man was in the 13000 block of W. McNichols near Ward at around 8:30 pm Monday “when an unidentified vehicle drove by and an inmate fired gunfire,” police said.

The victim suffered a single gunshot wound and was kept in a stable condition.

A description of a suspect was not available Tuesday evening.
