Police seek suspects in Detroit break-in and a shooting


In a break-in, several suspects are searched and shots are reported on Sunday and Monday on the north and west sides of the city, the police in Detroit said.

At around 3:20 a.m. Monday morning, a white U-Haul truck drove back to a store on the 15300 block of Eight Mile. “A hole was made, then three unknown men with ski masks and gloves got out of the vehicle and entered the place,” said the investigators in a statement.

While inside, the group grabbed several glasses of suspected marijuana and, according to the publication, broke into an ATM. They were last seen when they fled south on Brock.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police Department’s Ninth District at (313) 596-5940 or send anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.

At 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, a man was walking with a friend on the 14,500 block of Rutherford when a driver of an older model Buick pulled up and questioned him, police said.

The two began arguing, “which resulted in the suspect pulling a gun out of his vehicle and firing multiple shots at the victim,” police said.

The victim, identified as a 39-year-old man, was taken to hospital. He was temporarily in grave condition.

The suspect fled north on Rutherford. He is described as a bald man in his 60s, 5-foot-7, last seen in a green coat.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit Police Department’s Eighth Precinct Investigative Unit at (313) 596-5840 or Crime Stoppers.
