Detroit Police Captain Darrin Szilagyy says they believe the teens were targeted.
Both were transported to the hospital in unknown conditions. Police remain on the scene investigating.
“The kids approached the car – shots rang out from inside the car – striking a 16-year-old female. The group of kids, out of fear, ran westbound and ended up at the Mobile gas station here at Boulevard and Dexter – the black Cadillac pursued the youths up into the parking lot – heard some more shots – when our 17-year-old male victim was struck.”READ MORE: ‘He Sang The National Anthem At Our Graduations,' Sheriff Washington Remembers Wayne County Corporal Who Died From COVID-19
