1 dead in shooting at Water Station in Detroit
Detroit police are working to find two people connected with a robbery and fatal shooting at a popular business on the city’s north side Tuesday.
The pair entered the Water Station in the 18700 block of Woodward at Goldengate at about 7 p.m. with a handgun and in ski masks and approached a man inside, said Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department.
Police Capt. Steve Walton told Fox 2 that the suspects came in through the back door, took the cash register, then marched the three people there outside and forced them to empty their pockets.
“A struggle ensued and one of the suspects fired a shot that struck the victim,” said Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood, a spokeswoman for the Detroit Police Department.
The suspects fled the store. According to its website, the store offers wellness products and bottled alkaline water.
The victim, identified only as a 26-year-old man, was dead at the scene.
Authorities did not have a description of the suspects. Other details about the incident were not released.
Anyone with information is asked to call (313) 596-2260 or Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
