Two brothers, ages 17 and 26, were wounded in a drive-by shooting Sunday night on Detroit's east side.

The drive-by took place about 8:30 p.m. on Lappin off Schoenherr, north of East Seven Mile.

Detroit police spokesman Dontae Freeman said the brothers were driving southbound on Schoenherr and turned right onto Lappin, headed east.

A black vehicle pulled up alongside, lowered its windows and fired shots, wounding both brothers before fleeing westbound on Lappin.

The 17-year-old was shot in his neck and was conveyed by medics to an area hospital. He's listed in critical condition.

The 26-year-old took a graze wound to the wrist and was conveyed privately to an area hospital. He's in stable condition.

Police are investigating.
