DETROIT (AP) — Four people were wounded during a drive-by shooting on Detroit’s east side Wednesday night.
The three men and one woman were outside about 10:40 p.m. when the shots were fired from a passing vehicle, police said.
Two of the victims were listed Thursday in critical condition at a hospital. The other two were in stable condition. No arrests have been made.
More than 500 guns were seized in a recent four-week period, according to police Chief James Craig. On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Matthew Schneider told reporters that the Trump administration was sending federal agents to Detroit to help fight a rise in violent crime in the city.
Schneider said the federal officers sent to Detroit have been assigned to capture fugitives, address illegal gun possession and break up drug trafficking, among other tasks.
More than 40 people in the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, known as the ATF, have been newly hired in Detroit or assigned to the effort.
