Just after midnight Saturday, a 60-year-old woman and a 38-year-old man were shot in a drive-by on Detroit's west side, police said.


The shooting took place at 12:15 a.m. on the 5200 block of Oregon, which is south of Joy Road and west of Interstate 96. 

It started with the victims spotting a man at a Valero gas station at Tireman and Epworth. He drove a white Chevy Malibu, and was armed with a handgun. 

The victims drove a white Dodge pickup truck. When they left the gas station, the Malibu followed, and when they arrived on the 5200 block of Oregon, they parked the truck.

The suspect then pulled up in the Malibu and started shooting, injuring both victims. The woman was shot in her head and left in temporary serious condition. The man was shot multiple times and listed in critical condition.

Police are investigating.
