Inkster — A 16-year-old teen from Inkster died Sunday after being shot in the head, and a suspect has been arrested, Michigan State Police said.
The boy's homicide took place on the 800 block of Clair, in the area of Avondale and Henry Ruff, right near the Inkster-Westland border.
Police located the suspect, a 19-year-old Inkster man, at a hospital where he was being treated for a gunshot wound.
Early indications, police said, are that the shooting "may have been accidental." Gunfire struck both the victim in the head and the suspect in his hand.
Police have found the gun believed to have been used.
Police are preparing a case for the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office, which will make a decision on what to charge, if any.
