Police: 4 teens shot in 3 hours in Detroit
Detroit — Four teens were shot Sunday afternoon in a three-hour span in Detroit, police said.
Both shootings happened on the city's west side, and both incidents involved victims who were shot as they were taking a walk.
Sunday afternoon's violence came on the heels of a seven-hour timespan, from 10 p.m. Saturday to 5 a.m. Sunday, when seven people were shot in Detroit, including four people in a drive-by on the east side.
The first took place about 3 p.m. in the area of West Seven Mile and Washburn, just west of Wyoming. Police say the victims, a 13-year-old and two-14-year-olds, were confronted "by a group of males and females who began arguing."
During the commotion, police believe a man fired "several shots," wounding three victims, leaving the 13-year-old in critical condition and the 14-year-olds both in stable condition.
The shooter fled east on Seven Mile. No detailed description of the man is immediately available.
At 5:50 p.m., in the area of West McNichols and Meyers, about a mile and a half south and west of the previous shooting scene, a 16-year-old was out walking when a group of "unknown males" approached, police said.
When one of the males began questioning the victim, he tried to walk away.
But the male pulled a gun and shot him, before fleeing.
Medics transported the victim to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition. Police believe the shooter to be 17 to 20 years of age, but did not offer a detailed description.
