Police: 2 teens say they were shot after argument at dispensary
Police are investigating after two Detroit teens, 17 and 18, say they were shot after getting into an argument at a medical marijuana dispensary on the city's west side.
It was about 10:20 p.m. when officers responded to Sinai-Grace Hospital, because two young men had shown up in the emergency room, shot and in need of medical care.
The victims told police that they'd been at a dispensary in the area of Fenkell and Wyoming, and gotten into an argument with another visitor, said Michael Woody, director of media relations for the Detroit Police Department. That person allegedly pulled a gun.
The city of Detroit's map of dispensaries shows one dispensary in that area, Total Medz, which was ordered closed. Police sent to the area to investigate found no shooting scene and no dispensary, said Officer Jennifer Moreno, a Detroit police spokeswoman.
Police are searching the Grand River/Schaefer area for a shooting scene.
Dispensaries in Detroit need to close at or before 8 p.m., by rule. And a 17-year-old wouldn't have been allowed in a dispensary.
The victims say they drove away from the dispensary, but that the person with the gun followed them in his vehicle and fired shots. Both men were hit. The 18-year-old was struck in his left leg, and the 17-year-old was struck in his right arm. They were able to drive themselves to Grace hospital.
Both victims are in temporary serious condition.
