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.
