Police Seek Gunmen In Fatal Bus Station Shooting

DETROIT (WWJ) – An exchange of words ends with shots fired early Wednesday morning at the Greyhound bus station in downtown Detroit, leaving one young man dead and another wounded. Now, police are looking for the two gunmen.

Police said an identified 18-year old man was arguing with a second man when shots were fired and he was killed. Another person, identified as 21-year-old Cornell Hayes of Detroit, was caught in the crossfire.

WWJ’s Ron Dewey spoke with a witness at the scene.

“It happened fast,” the witness said. “We heard the shooting; the gentleman was with me; I seen he got hit and I took him to the back of the building and tied his leg up … to try and stop the bleeding.”

That victim, Cornell Hayes, was taken to a nearby hospital, where police said he was expected to recover. He was listed in stable condition Wednesday afternoon.

The gunmen got away. Police describe the two suspects as follows:

Suspect #1: black male with light skin tone, 5′-10″ tall. He was wearing a black t-shirt, gray sweatshirt with a hood and blue jeans. He was carrying a weapon.

Suspect #2: described only as a black male.

Both escaped in a black Jeep Cherokee, accompanied by a light-skinned black female, who was driving.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police.
