A 34-year-old man died after being shot during an argument on the street on Detroit's west side Monday afternoon, police said. 

The shooting homicide took place about 3 p.m. on the 2000 block of Pingree, said Dontae Freeman, a Detroit police spokesman. The area is south of Clairmount and east of Rosa Parks.

Two witnesses had come from out of state to pick up the victim, police say, but he was approached by two men while sitting in a car with the witnesses.

He got out and argued with the two men and was shot in the leg. 

After being privately driven to an area hospital, the victim died from his injuries.

Police offered descriptions of the two suspects. 

The alleged shooter is an 18 or 19-year-old black male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, with dark skin, dreadlocks, and a teardrop tattoo on his left cheek. He wore all black and carried a handgun.

The second suspect is a black male, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and heavy set. He wore a white shirt.
