A 38-year-old man was left in critical condition after being shot multiple times while inside his vehicle Sunday afternoon on Detroit’s west side, police confirmed.

Foul play is not suspected in the death of a 34-year-old man found lying on the ground Monday along Gratiot in Roseville.

The broad daylight shooting took place about 2 p.m. Sunday in the area of Joy Road and Stout, which is just west of Evergreen.

Officers arrived to find a Cadillac Escalade in the intersection, shot up, said Detroit Police Department spokeswoman Kenyetta Hebron. They found blood on the seat and spent shell casings in the street, but no victim.

Turns out the victim, the 38-year-old man, was privately conveyed in another vehicle to an area hospital. Police found him there in critical condition, wounded by multiple gun shots, but able to speak. No description of the suspect or suspects in the shooting has emerged. Police are investigating.

The Escalade was taken into evidence, said Michael Woody, director of media relations for the Detroit Police Department.
