Man fatally shot on Detroit's west side
Detroit police are investigating a fatal shooting of a 30-year-old man on Saturday night on the city's west side.
The homicide took place about 6:55 p.m. on the 6700 block of Artesian, which is south of West Warren and west of the Southfield Freeway.
Police initially arrived on the 6100 block of Artesian to respond to a car crash.
But a witness at the scene told them that the crash had actually started with a shooting.
The victim was driving south on Artesian, following a gray Nissan Altima, when the Altima pulled over and a passenger got out. The passenger then pulled a gun and fired about 10 shots in the direction of the victim's vehicle.
This caused his vehicle to lose control and hit a number of parked cars on the street.
Medics arrived and took the victim to a hospital, but he died from his injuries.
