"During the altercation, one of the suspects produced a weapon and fired multiple shots into the victims’ vehicle, striking them," police said in a statement.

The suspects fled the scene in a silver Kia minivan, according to the release.

The driver, a 37-year-old man, turned himself in to the city's Sixth Precinct at about 11 a.m. Wednesday, police said. He was being held at the Detroit Detention Center.
