2 Women Dead Following Shooting At Detroit Senior Center

DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit Police say two women are dead and a man is in custody after a shooting at a Detroit senior center on the city’s southwest side.

The shooting happened Sunday night after police say the 65-year-old suspect had an argument with his girlfriend that ended their relationship. Police say the man then went to his apartment at the Pablo Davis Elder Living Center, retrieved a rifle and started looking for two residents he blamed for the breakup.

Police say the man shot the first woman, who was in her 50s, as she sat on a bench outside the apartment building. He then went inside and shot the second woman, who was in her 60s.

The suspect was arrested coming back out of the building at 9200 West Vernor, which has about 80 apartment units.
