Boy, 15, shot after school football game in Detroit
Detroit police are working to find a suspect accused of shooting a 15-year-old boy after a football game Friday on the city’s west side.
The youth and a friend were walking near Curtis and Indiana at about 6:35 p.m. after leaving the event at Mumford High School when they decided to talk with some girls there, said Officer Nicole Kirkwood, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department. Another group of boys spotted them and apparently “got upset,” she said.
As the 15-year-old and his companion started walking away, a black Chevy Impala “drove by and someone inside started firing shots,” Kirkwood said.
The teen was struck and rushed to a hospital. He was listed in stable condition.
The Chevy fled east on Curtis. It’s unclear how many people were inside, and investigators do not yet have a full description of suspects, Kirkwood said. “We are investigating to determine exactly what happened.”
Anyone with information is asked to call 12th Precinct investigative unit at (313) 596-1240 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at (800) SPEAK-UP.
