Detroit — An early Monday argument between three people believed to be in a love triangle led to a man being shot, a woman being injured and two people being arrested, police say

The incident took place just before 2:30 a.m. in the area of Michigan Ave. and 51st, just east of Central.

What led to the violent dispute was not immediately known, Corporal Dan Donakowski, a Detroit Police Department spokesman, said.

As the dispute played out, police believe a 29-year-old woman attempted to run over a 22-year-old woman with a burgundy 2016 Cadillac Escalade. She was arrested and has been lodged at Detroit Detention Center. 

A 27-year-old man was shot in his ankle and was also arrested for allegedly pointing a gun at at the younger woman, Donakowski said. The shooting left the victim in stable condition.

The younger woman suffered minor cuts and bruises, but refused medical treatment and was not arrested, according to Donakowski.
