Detroit — A 19-year-old girl is on life support after she was shot in the head and dumped on the city’s east side early Tuesday morning.

“We received a call at about 12:45 a.m. about a young female possibly being pushed out of a van and dumped on to a front lawn in the 19200 block of Blackmoor,” said Sgt. Michael Woody.

“Officers observed head trauma and the victim was taken to a local hospital where a CAT scan showed that she had been shot in the head.

“She’s being kept alive right now on life support, and it’s not looking very good.”

The 19200 block of Blackmoor is located in an area east of Outer Drive and north of Seven Mile.

At this point, police do not have a description of the van or any suspects in the incident.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-2200.
