The incident unfolded around 11:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Valero gas station on 7 Mile Road and Pierson Street, between Evergreen and Lahser roads.

Police say the victims, two 21-year-old men and a 31-year-old man, were in a van at pump number two when two suspects walked up and started shooting, striking all three men.
