Three people were shot Saturday night during an exchange of gunfire at a large party in Eastpointe and a 15-year-old boy died from his injuries, police said.

The shootings took place about 10:30 p.m. at Wilmer and Holland, which is south of Nine Mile and west of Kelly. During the party, two groups argued and the organizer of the party shut the gathering down.

The shooting took place as the two groups were leaving. In addition to the three victims who were shot, multiple homes and vehicles were hit by the gunfire, police said. 

The slain 15-year-old was found shot in his head and neck. He later died. A 19-year-old man, who was shot in the torso, and a 34-year-old man who was shot in the foot are both expected to survive. All three victims are from Detroit, police said. 

There are no suspect descriptions as yet, and no arrests have been made.

Saturday’s shooting was one of two shootings targeting multiple victims in Metro Detroit. A 20-year-old woman was fatally shot and three others wounded late Saturday night at a family gathering on Detroit’s west side, police said.

Eastpointe police ask anyone with information on the shooting to call the detective bureau at (586) 445-5100.
