10 Shot, 1 Dead At Detroit Block Party
It happened Saturday night at child’s birthday party.
Detroit Police Assistant Chief Steve Dolunt said shots were fired around 8:30 p.m. at the basketball courts at Dexter and Webb, where a large crowd of about 400 people were gathered for a birthday party.
A 20-year-old man was killed and a 46-year-old man is in critical condition. Eight other people, including three women and five men, were also shot and some were taken to the hospital. Dolunt said it was a “miracle” no children were shot… Police say shots were fired from at least two semi-automatic weapons and that the deceased victim could have been an intended target.
Police took one man into custody on a misdemeanor warrant but it’s unclear whether he was involved in the shooting.
