DETROIT (WWJ) – One young man is dead and another is hospitalized after an overnight shooting on Detroit’s northwest side.

Police say two suspects armed with handguns knocked on the door of a home in the 18900 Coyle Street, near 7 Mile Road and Greenfield, shortly after 12 a.m. Tuesday. When they got inside, they started shooting.

A 22-year-old man, who was shot multiple times, was pronounced dead on arrival at a local hospital. A 23-year-old man, also shot multiple time, was listed in critical condition, according to police.
