Detroit — Two people were fatally shot in separate incidents at about the same time, 8:25 p.m. Sunday night, police said. On Monday morning, police arrested two of the three people suspected in one victim's death.

Both shootings took place off the I-94 corridor, but one happened on the city's east side, the other on the west.

The Detroit Police Department served a search warrant in Westland on Monday, said Officer Holly Lance, connected to a shooting in the 9100 block of Beaconsfield, north of Harper, east of Outer Drive, where police say a 16-year-old girl and a "known" suspect had a dispute. 

The suspect left the scene with two people.

But soon after, a gunshot was fired into the home, striking the girl.

They arrested two people in Westland: a 22-year-old man and a 32-year-old woman.

Police are still searching for a third suspect, a 23-year-old woman.

In the other shooting, on the 2400 block of Cicotte — south of Michigan Avenue, west of Livernois — a 34-year-old man was found shot in a blue Ford Ranger.

Medics transported him to the hospital, but the man died. Police aren't yet certain of the circumstances prior to the shooting, and have no shooter description to immediately offer.
