DETROIT (WWJ) – Police in Detroit are searching for a pair of suspects who robbed a group of men at gunpoint, fatally shooting a 19-year-old who tried to get away.

The incident happened Monday night on the city’s east side. Witnesses told police the victim and three other young men were leaving a house on Marseilles in the Cornerstone Village neighborhood when they were approached by two armed men.

The robbers took off in a silver Chrysler Sebring.

Police are now looking for two African-American males, both described as about 5’9″ tall with a thin build, wearing all black.
