A 38-year-old woman has died in a early Saturday shooting on Detroit's east side, police say.  

A homeowner in the 5400 block of Seneca Street  heard four or five gunshots ring out at around 12:50 a.m., authorities say. When the homeowner looked out the window and saw the victim lying on the ground, they called police.

Upon arriving at the scene, officers transported the victim, a woman, to an area hospital, where she later died from her injuries. 

Although the circumstances surrounding the shooting are unknown, police have a male suspect they are searching for.
