Surveillance images released of pair sought in shooting at west Detroit gas station


Detroit police released surveillance images of two people wanted in connection with a shooting on the west side of the city that resulted in a man being wounded.

The man and woman got out of a golden, older model Dodge caravan at a gas station on the 10,000 block of Rosa Parks at around 10:10 p.m. on March 12, a few seconds before a 22-year-old driver made a statement at a GMC envoy.

The man walked to the side door of the GMC, “then went to the rear of the victim’s vehicle, pulled out a gun and fired shots that hit him according to the release.”

The victim fled and drove herself to a local hospital. His injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

The suspect and his companion returned to the Dodge and drove south on Rosa Parks.

Authorities described him as about 6 feet tall, medium height and with short hair, last seen wearing a black T-shirt, ripped black jeans and a belt bag.

His companion is described as a thin, red-haired woman who was last seen in a light-colored denim jacket and jeans.

Anyone who recognizes them or has information is asked to call Detroit Police Department 10th District at (313) 596-1040. Michigan crime stoppers also accept anonymous tips at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
