A 27-year-old man is dead and four others, including a teenage girl struck while inside her home, were shot after an altercation resulted in gunfire on Detroit’s east side, police said Sunday.

Police have a 23-year-old man in custody in the Saturday evening shooting and are looking for another man and the dark gray GMC Yukon the men are believed to have used, Detroit Police Officer Dan Donakowski said Sunday.

The shooting took place just before 6 p.m. Saturday on the 9500 block of Oakland.

Police say the two suspects got in an argument with a group of people, then pulled out guns and started shooting.

The 27-year-old male was killed, while four others were hit none fatally, Donakowski said. Those victims are a 16-year-old girl, a 20-year-old man, a 48-year-old man, and a 26-year-old woman.

The girl was not involved in the incident, Donakowski said. She was inside her home and was hit by a stray bullet.
