Detroit police have identified a “person of interest” in a broad daylight triple shooting on Saturday that left one victim in critical condition.

The suspect, Demarko Santagilo Taylor, was seen in the area of the 16500 block of Prevost on Saturday, inside a black Dodge Charger. That block of Prevost is east of the Southfield Freeway and south of McNichols.

Minutes later, at about 5:40 p.m., a black Dodge Charger pulled up and a man exited the back passenger seat and started opening fire on three men in their 20s who were standing in front of a house. One of the victims, who is 26, was left in critical condition. Police say the alleged shooter is a black male in his 20s, slim and with braids. He was wearing a red shirt.

The Detroit Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance in locating Demarko Santangilo Taylor, a person of interest wanted in connection with the non-fatal shooting.

Taylor was seen in the area just minutes before the shooting, inside the same black Dodge Charger.

Police ask anyone who has information on Taylor’s whereabouts to call the 8th precinct at 313-596-5851, or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 800-SPEAK-UP.
