Detroit โ€” The Detroit Police Department has released photos and a video of two men wanted in connection with a non-fatal shooting of a teenage girl in Greektown Saturday night.

The shooter is described as a heavy-set male, between 16 and 18 years of age. He was wearing a red jacket with white stripes down the sleeves, as well as black shoes with red laces.

He was last seen getting into a black Nissan Sentra.

According to police, an 18-year-old woman was shot in the leg near Monroe and Beaubien. The victim told police she was walking, heard shots and then felt pain.

She was taken to a local hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

The Saturday shooting was one of two that occurred in the iconic Greektown area, normally one of the safest and most visited parts of the city, over the weekend.

Then late Sunday night, two men were found shot in an alley in the area of 400 Monroe. One man, age 19, was dead at the scene while the other man, 21, was wounded but is expected to make a full recovery from his non-life threatening injuries.

The shootings remain under investigation and police are looking into the possibility that the two men shot each other.

The three shootings were part of a very violent weekend in Detroit, culminating in the shooting of 24 people, including 12 โ€” one fatally โ€” at an outdoor party Saturday night.

Anyone with information about the shootings is asked to contact the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-2200 or (800) SPEAK UP (773-2587).
