Detroit police are investigating two shootings Tuesday on the city's west side that left a teen wounded and another person dead.

A 17-year-old was sitting in a Ford Explorer on the 18900 block of Lenore at about 6 p.m. when "an unknown vehicle pulled up and someone inside fired shots, striking him in the body," investigators said in a statement.

Medics transported him to a hospital, where he was listed in temporary serious condition Tuesday night, according to the release.

At about 6:30 p.m., a male was found fatally shot in the 22100 block of Kessler.
