DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are actively searching for suspects in a deadly shooting Thursday evening in the city’s historic Boston Edison district.
Police say a 27-year-old man was killed and a 19-year-old woman was injured after suspects in a black Chevy Impala with a silver stripe pulled up to a van, on Rosa Parks Blvd. and Glynn Court near Woodward, and opened fire.READ MORE: Michigan Reports 5,616 New COVID-19 Cases, 68 Deaths
Two children in the van escaped uninjured.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig said Friday that the suspect or suspects remain on the loose. It’s still not clear, he said, what provoked the shooting.
“I’m not gonna say that they were targeted,” he told WWJ’s Mike Campbell and other reporters. “It certainly appears that way, based on what transpired.”READ MORE: Detroit Police Seek Assistance Locating Suspect Wanted For Critical Assault
The chief called the shooting “tragic.”
“We talk about this call to action. Once again, cowardly suspects — violent, predatory suspects who have no regard for human life, evident by the fact that they don’t mind taking a life in the presence of a child,” Craig said.
“We are now going to tolerate that. This community, this city is not going to tolerate that; so criminals should beware.”
The name of the man killed and the condition of the woman injured have not been released.MORE NEWS: FBI Asks Public's Help After Explosives Found In N. Michigan
