Two Injured In Second Shooting In Detroit During Fireworks

DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police confirmed a second shooting happened Monday night in downtown Detroit, injuring two.

The shooting occurred near Cass and Fort, and happened in addition to a shooting at the Spirit of Detroit.

In this incident, according to Assistant Detroit police Chief Arnold Williams, there was an argument between occupants in vehicle and others outside the vehicle. Those outside the vehicle fired shots at those inside it, police said.

One of the occupants inside the vehicle experienced a gut shot wound and the other occupant experienced a grazing wound. Both were transported to local hospital and are expected to be OK.

Detroit police are currently searching for the three suspects.

Williams said he doesn’t believe this second shooting is related to the Detroit fireworks show.

“As far as we know now, because of the location of where the incident took place we are not attributing that to the fireworks,” Williams said.
