A 28-year-old woman was killed early Saturday morning on Detroit’s west side after an argument between two men as a club on Detroit’s west side ended in gunfire, police said.

The shooting took place about 2 a.m. Saturday on the 15700 block of the John C. Lodge service drive, said Sgt. Adam Madera, a Detroit Police Department spokesman. Trouble started with an argument between a man who police say may be a bouncer at the club and another man, who police say was traveling in the same vehicle as the victim.

Police say the man exited the vehicle and the altercation with the security guard became physical, with both men firing shots. The car carrying the victim drove away, but the woman was hit. The car stopped at a gas station on Wyoming, and its driver alerted the clerk that the woman had been shot. The clerk called 911.

Medics arrived and took the victim to an area hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Neither of the alleged shooters is under arrest as yet, Madera said, nor is there a description of either man in the early stages of the investigation.

According to Michigan State Police figures, in 2015, the most recent numbers available, arguments were the most likely circumstance preceding homicides in Michigan.
