According to police, at 11:40 p.m. Sept. 25, a 26-year-old female driver and a 31-year-old male passenger were traveling east in a red Pontiac G5 on West Eight Mile toward James Couzens. As the victims merged onto James Couzens, a suspect in a dark-colored minivan fired multiple shots into the vehicle. The woman died and the man was taken to a hospital and treated for a non-fatal gunshot wound, police said.
