Detroit — Police are still trying to determine how a dispute led to the shooting of four people Monday night on the city’s near northwest side.
According to Third Deputy Chief Rodney Johnson, the incident occurred at about 10 p.m. in the 800 block of Calvert Street, near the Boston-Edison District near Hamilton Avenue just east of the Lodge Freeway.
“We don’t yet have a basis for a dispute,” Johnson said. “But we have identified and arrested a 46-year-old male in the shooting.”
All the victims were transported to Henry Ford Hospital.
According to police, the victims included a 23-year-old woman who was shot in the stomach and is in critical condition; a 38-year-old woman who was shot in the chest and is also in critical condition; a 22-year-old woman who was shot in the face and is in temporary serious condition; and a 32-year-old man who was shot in the legs has no condition available Tuesday.
Police did recover a weapon used in the shootings.
The neighborhood is composed of well-kept, two-story homes. A few boarded-up houses stood among the others.
At the scene, three young men identified as family members of the victims huddled outside a home where a crime scene investigation van could be seen. Crime scene tape cordoned off the home.
