Police: Teen in custody in connection with quadruple shooting in Detroit
Detroit — A 17-year-old has been arrested in connection with a quadruple shooting in the city's west side, police said Friday.
A witness told investigators that the male suspect was seen fleeing from a front porch where the four victims had been gathered in the 6300 block of Vinewood near West Grand Boulevard when shots rang out about 6:30 p.m., Detroit Police Officer Vanessa Burt said.
All four were rushed to a hospital for treatment. One victim, a 34 year old man, was listed in critical condition with stomach wound. Two others, ages 21 and 22, were in stable condition with shin and face injuries, respectively. A fourth, age 23, was in temporary serious condition with a back wound, police said.
After the teen's arrest, officers remained on the scene after 10 p.m., blocking off nearby Milford and combing a three-story home with flashlights.
Michigan State Police troopers and K-9 units assisted Detroit police at the scene.
