Detroit police are investigating two Monday shootings, one of them fatal. One happened on the city's east side, the other in southwest Detroit.

The fatal shooting took place just after 5:40 p.m. on the 13800 block of Bringard. That's south of East Eight Mile and east of Schoenherr.

Latrice Crawford, a Detroit police spokeswoman, said the victim's family was inside the home when they heard gunfire.

They looked outside and found the victim, a 51-year-old black male, on the ground, wounded. The victim was transported to a hospital, but died from his injuries.

Six hours later, in the area of Leonard and Liebold, which is south and east of Interstate 75 in southwest Detroit, a 31-year-old man was wounded in a shooting.

Police say the victim left a gas station in the area, drove to the scene of the shooting, parked, and exited his vehicle.

Then shots were fired from another vehicle, striking the man. Police would recover several shell casings from the scene.

The victim was privately conveyed to a hospital, but his condition was not immediately available.
