Pontiac — One man was fatally shot and three others seriously wounded in separate incidents over the weekend in Pontiac.
The three shooting incidents — two within 24 hours at the same Coney Island restaurant — remain under investigation, according to Oakland County Undersheriff Michael McCabe.
"There is a suspect in at least one of the shootings," said McCabe, who did not elaborate.
A 42-year-old Rochester Hills man was fatally shot shortly before midnight in an apartment complex in the 100 block of Ridgemont. The victim was found in a courtyard by deputies and transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. His name was not released by investigators pending notification of next of kin.
About 3 a.m. on Saturday, deputies were sent to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital after receiving the report of a victim who had been shot once in each leg outside the Universal Coney Island in the 800 block of N. Perry. The 18-year-old victim told investigators he was wounded after arguing with two men he knew only as "J-Rock" and "Shag" and he believed one of them was responsible.
Around 3 a.m. Sunday deputies responded to reports of another shooting incident at the Universal Coney Island. Two area hospitals reported treating the victims in their emergency rooms.
The preliminary investigation found a fight had broken out in the restaurant parking lot and gunshots were heard by witnesses. A 25-year-old Pontiac man was reported in critical condition in St. Joseph Mercy Hospital late Monday afternoon with a gunshot wound to the leg. A 22-year-old Rochester Hills man was listed in stable condition Monday in McLaren Oakland Hospital with a gunshot wound to the stomach.
A cash reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the persons responsible. Tipsters can call the sheriff's office at (248) 858-4911 or Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) SPEAK-UP.
