Detroit police are working to identify two people wanted in connection with a shooting that critically wounded a man this week on the city’s west side.

Investigators reported the victim argued with the pair about 7 p.m. Tuesday at a liquor store in the 20000 block of West Seven Mile. During the argument, one of the suspects pulled out a gun and pointed it at the 26-year-old, authorities said in a statement.

The suspects eventually walked out of the store but kept arguing with the other man then followed them, according to the release.
