Detroit police are seeking another person in connection with gunshots fired on officers Thursday on the city’s west side.

The man investigators believe was involved was captured on a surveillance camera.

While the officers from the 8th Precinct were conducting an investigation at about 3:15 a.m. outside a motel on Telegraph near McNichols, someone in a white Kia fired shots in their direction, investigators said. No injuries were reported in the incident.

"Three people were subsequently arrested and/or detained after a vehicle (matching) the description of the Kia was observed in the area of Blackstone near Outer Drive," police said.

Assistant Police Chief David LeValley told reporters two adults and a juvenile were taken into custody after the Kia crashed following a brief pursuit.

Investigators believe another man seen with a long gun near the scene may have been involved in the incident. He is described as having long dreadlocks and last seen wearing a black shirt, orange shorts and brown shoes.

Anyone who knows his whereabouts, or has any information related to this crime is asked to call Detroit police at (313) 596-2260. Anonymous tips can be submitted to Crime Stoppers of Michigan at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
