Detroit — Police are investigating a mid-afternoon shooting on Detroit's east side that killed one man and wounded another.

The double shooting took place about 3:40 p.m. Sunday in the 1800 block of East Outer Drive. That's south of East Eight Mile and east of Dequindre.

Police say a "group of males" were in the area when gunshots rang out. One man, believed to be 18, fell to the ground and never got back up. Medics pronounced him dead at the scene.

A second victim, also believed to be 18, was able to flee on foot to the 20000 block of Mitchell, about a third of a mile north and east of the shooting scene after being wounded. He's listed in temporary serious condition.

An investigation is ongoing.
