Detroit — An 18-year-old man was shot downtown Wednesday in Grand Circus Park, Detroit police said. 

Officers closed West Adams and placed crime tape around the William Cotter Maybury Monument.

He was listed in stable condition hours after the incident, which was reported about 5 p.m. near Woodward and Adams.

Investigators were working to find three people who may be connected to the shooting, said Officer Holly Lowe, a department spokeswoman. Police described the possible suspects only as two men believed to be in their 30s and a woman in her 20s, Lowe said. Earlier, Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood said police had questioned several people about the incident.

One person was detained but released at the scene; another was in custody and was being held on unrelated charges, police reported.

Several police cruisers closed West Adams during the investigation of the shooting. The area is across from Brass Rail Pizza and the Fillmore Theatre.

The five-acre Grand Circus Park is near downtown destinations such as Comerica Park, the Fox Theatre, Detroit Opera House, Ford Field and Little Caesars Arena.

The shooting was at least the second downtown in recent weeks. Last month, a 24-year-old man died in a drive-by shooting near Gratiot and St. Antoine.
