Inkster — Michigan State Police are investigating a shooting in Inkster that left one person dead and another person  injured, officials said.

Troopers were called about 1:20 a.m. Wednesday to the 28000 block of Glenwood near Middle Belt and Cherry Hill for a report of a shooting.

They found a white Chevrolet Traverse parked on the north side of Glenwood facing westbound, state police said on Twitter.

"When they walked up to the car they could see bullet holes in the car and a deceased 27 year old male sitting in the driver’s seat," the agency posted.

State police initially reported they found three victims. MSP later said on Twitter that two people connected to the scene drove themselves to the hospital for treatment. A male had non-life-threatening injuries, and "it was determined that the second female party was not struck during the incident," the post said.

Investigators recovered more than 50 shell casings from the scene and canvassed the neighborhood but had not found witnesses Wednesday, state police said.

The shooting is not believed to be random, the agency said. An investigation is ongoing.
