ROYAL OAK (WWJ) – An investigation is ongoing after three men were injured in a shooting and stabbing in Royal Oak.

Police said events unfolded Sunday afternoon as a 26-year-old Lathrup Village man and a friend went to Woodward North Apartments on 13 Mile Road to confront a 35-year-old Royal Oak man about “an ongoing personal disagreement.”

An argument ensured, police said, things escalated and the 35-year-old retrieved several knives from his apartment — then stabbing the younger man in the arm. The friend, a 26-year-old man from Detroit, was also stabbed before he allegedly shot the 35-year-old in the leg.

Police were called and the Royal Oak man was arrested. He remains in custody. The two other men were taken into custody as well but were released pending further investigation.

None of the injuries were life threatening, according to police.

Investigators noted that the alleged shooter does hold a CPL. No names or further details, including what the initial dispute was about, have been released.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call Royal Oak Police Criminal Investigation
Division Lt. Keith Spencer at 248-246-3456.
