DETROIT – Ten people were shot, one fatally at a block party on a basketball court at Webb and Dexter on Saturday night.
Police do not know the reason for the shooting, and are still investigating.
At least three of the victims who were shot were women, ages 30, 45, and 26. Asst. Chief Steve Dolunt said it’s a miracle no kids were shot as many were present during the shooting.
As of 10 p.m. Saturday, police were not releasing the identity of the person who was killed
A 46-year-old man is also in critical condition and two other men, 21 and 26 years old are in serious condition.
Dolunt said police do not know the reason for the shooting and thus far people at the party were not being cooperative with police seeking information.
He said there was no excuse for shooting when kids were present. There were little kids and strollers, he said. “It’s a party,” he said.
“I think one individual was the target the others just happened to be at this party,” Dolunt said. (read more)
