Police are investigating a shooting Thursday outside an auto shop on Detroit’s east side where another man was fatally shot a day earlier.

Officers were called at about 3:30 p.m to the business on the 14000 block of Mack, where they found a 52-year-old lying in the street with gunshot wounds, said Officer Dan Donakowski, a spokesman for the Detroit Police Department.

The man, who has not been named, was taken to a local hospital. He was listed in critical condition, Donakowski said.

A description of suspects was not yet available, he said.

“We’re unable to speak with the victim at this time,” Donakowski said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-5540.

It’s not clear if the incident is related to the Wednesday shooting outside the body shop that left a 60-year-old man dead. Authorities believe two men entered the spot at about 2:20 p.m. and fired shots at him before fleeing in a white Chevy Impala driven by a third male.

“We have to get information” as the investigation progresses, Donakowski said.

Police still are seeking suspects. One is described as a heavy set African-American male, 50 years old, 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall. He was last seen wearing all black clothing, and a black baseball cap with green lettering.

The second suspect is described as an African-American male, 50 years old, last seen wearing all black clothing.

Anyone with information is asked to the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-1616. Anonymous tips can also be submitted through Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
