Police Search For Suspects After 2 Shot Dead In Westland

WESTLAND (WWJ) – Westland police are searching for suspects in an overnight double-shooting in at Newburgh and Michigan Ave., near I-275.

Police told WWJ’s Charlie Langton they responded to a call about shots fired in the area Monday morning. When they arrived, they found the bodies of two men, 19 and 35 years old.

“We had a couple calls of shots fire from the residents,” said Westland Police Sgt. Robert Wilkie. “We came out and we discovered that there was a person deceased. We further canvassed the area searching for more evidence, any suspects, and we located a second deceased suspect, also on the street.

The two bodies were separated by quite a distance, police said.

While the shooter is on the run, investigators say people living in the area shouldn’t worry because they believe the killings were not random.

Wilkie said evidence from the scene showed the shooting appears to be drug-related.

The victims’s names were not immediately released.
