Detroit police are looking for a man who is believed to have intervened in his cousin's argument with gunfire late Sunday on the city's east side, wounding two men.

The double shooting took place at 10:30 p.m. Sunday on the 600 block of Chalmers, south of East Jefferson.

Police say one of the victims, born in 1992, was arguing with his girlfriend, when the suspect, who is in his 20s, intervened. Police say the suspect is the cousin of the woman who was in the argument.

When the suspect got involved, a second man, born in 1991, interjected himself in the argument. The suspect then pulled out a gun and shot both victims, said Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. 

The first victim was shot in his right arm. After being privately transported to an area hospital, he was listed in temporary serious condition. The second suspect was shot in his left shoulder and side, and is in temporary serious condition.
