Ecorse — An early morning shooting that injured four at an Ecorse gas station was not a random act, police said.

“It was an ongoing feud, we feel like,” Sgt. William McCaig said. “We’re putting the pieces of the picture together. It wasn’t random by any stretch of the imagination.”

Four males, ages 21-24, were out celebrating a birthday around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday when they stopped at a gas station on Jefferson at Union, McCaig said.

While at the gas station, a suspect walked up passenger side of the vehicle and fired two shots in the car, McCaig said. When the victims got out of the vehicle and ran, the suspect fired two more shots.

The victims got back into their vehicle and drove down the street to the Ecorse Police Station, where officers assisted them until emergency personnel arrived.

One man, shot in the right triceps area, was in serious condition and underwent surgery, police said. Another man, who got glass or a bullet fragment in his left eye, was also in the hospital. Two men shot in the back were treated and released, police said.

Police do not have any suspects in custody.
