Medina had learned that his wife was filing or had filed for divorce, and where she was living now, police say, and confronted her. Police allege he pulled out a gun as she pulled up in her car and began firing shots. A second woman, 27, the driver, was fatally struck. Earlier reports had placed the driver in another car.

Medina's estranged wife exited the car and attempted to run from the scene before she was fatally shot, as well.

Medina escaped in a silver/blue Chevy Camaro, which was later recovered. He is described as a Hispanic male, 41 years of age. He was last seen wearing a blue and white t-shirt and blue jeans. He is to be considered armed and dangerous.

If you have any information pertaining to Medina or the crime you're asked to call the Detroit Police Homicide at (313) 596-2260, leave a tip on the DPD Connect app or call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
