DETROIT (WWJ) - Police are on the hunt for suspects after a particularly bloody weekend in Detroit.

The toll in the city during a 24-hour period from Saturday morning to Sunday morning includes four dead and at least seven others who were shot and wounded.

Among the dead is a 17-year-old boy who was shot during a what police described as a $2 gambling game on Bliss Street near Van Dyke on the city’s east side. Another man was fatally shot as he sat in his car.

Among the other shootings, a 24-year-old man was critically wounded when someone opened fire on a party bus, a 16-year-old was wounded by a drive-by shooter as he sat on his porch, and a 14-year-old was shot after a large physical altercation broke out near McNichols Road and the Southfield Freeway.

Only one arrest was made in any of the cases. A 48-year-old woman is in custody in connection with the stabbing death of a 66-year-old man who found lying on the sidewalk early Sunday morning on Gray Street near Conner.
