Gang Related Triple Shooting In Detroit Leaves One Teen Dead

DETROIT (WWJ) – One of three teens shot in a gang-related drive-by shooting shortly after 4 p.m. Monday near Eastburn and Anvil in Detroit has died, police said.

Detroit Sgt. Eren Stephens tells WWJ a 15-year old and two 16-year-olds were shot. One of the 16-year-olds later died. The other 16-year old was injured, and the youngest teen is in critical condition.

Detroit Police Chief Ralph Godbee went to the hospital to talk to one of the survivors about the shooting, but the victim refused to help. Detroit gangs have a well-known “no snitches” policy.

Police have no suspects in custody.
