New Leads In Roller Rink Mass Shooting: Gangs Behind Violent Attack

WATERFORD (WWJ) -Waterford Township Police say they think they know what was behind last month’s shooting at the Rolladium skating rink.

WWJ’s Violet Ikonomova reports that police say a conflict between two rival gangs is to blame for the shooting that sent five people to the hospital.

The gangs, known as the Goon Squad and First Infantry, are Pontiac-based.

Police have identified two suspects in the case: they’re looking for 17-year-old Cheyenne Ingram and Robert Lee German.

One of the victims shot was an intended target and rival to the shooters, and was shot once before in a similar incident.

Police say people have been afraid to come forward for fear of retaliation — still, they’re urging anyone with information to contact them here or by phone.
