Pair sought in double shooting on Detroit’s east side


Detroit police released surveillance images last week of two suspects wanted in connection with a double-fire shooting on the east side of the city.

A 19-year-old man was at a store on Mack’s 10,000 block at around 4:45 pm Friday when “words were exchanged” with another person who pulled out a gun and shot him, police said.

A 46-year-old bystander was also hit before the suspect fled with an armed second suspect.

Both victims were hospitalized in stable condition after the incident.

A third man said he was injured in the shooting, but refused treatment and left the scene, police said.

The first suspect is described as a man 18 to 20 years old, roughly 5 feet 7 and 150 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black face mask, black hoodie with a red stripe on each shoulder and writing on the front, brown pants, and black and white sneakers.

Authorities describe the second suspect as a man aged 18 to 20, 170 pounds, between 5 feet 9 and 5 feet 11 inches tall, black hair, partly in dreadlocks and tattoos on both arms. He was last seen in a black t-shirt with white letters, camouflage pants and purple sneakers.

The second suspect seen on camera.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Fifth Precinct Detective Unit of the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-5540. Crime Stoppers of Michigan accepts anonymous tips at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
