DETROIT (WWJ) – The search continues for a woman police say opened fire into a crowd following a Detroit Princess riverboat cruise.

Sgt. Alan Quinn said the incident was sparked by an argument on the boat. A woman who was part of the group went to her car to get a gun during the dispute, and when she returned she began shooting into the crowd.

Detroit Princess General Manager Chris Clarke offered more details about the shooting he said was the result of a “family” argument that began aboard the boat.

“This was a husband-wife or boyfriend-girlfriend (that) had an incident … she was assaulted in
a way. We did our job and separated them and kept them apart for the night. The rest of their family was on the boat,” said Clarke. “And one of the gals, when they got back to the shore,
went to the car — and they’re actually cousins — shot each other.”

Police said one man was critically injured. The remaining victims suffered only minor injuries.

There were hundreds of people on the boat at the time of the shooting.

No names have been released and police said they had no suspects in custody.

Investigators were still looking for the shooter Monday afternoon.
