DETROIT (WWJ) — Detroit police are investigating a triple shooting on the city’s west side that took place on Saturday afternoon.

A police spokesperson told WWJ Newsradio 950 that the shooting happened just after 5:30 p.m. on Prevost Street, in the area of Greenfield and Puritan.

Three men — two 26-year-olds and a 27-year-old — were shot. The 27-year-old is in critical condition. Police say the men were standing outside when a black Dodge Charger pulled up and someone got out and opened fire.

The shooter was seen getting back into the rear passenger side of the car before it drove away.
