On Sunday morning, an unidentified assailant launched a random attack in Detroit, shooting 4 people and killing three over two and a half hours.
On Sunday afternoon the Detroit police were searching for the shooter with help from the FBI, Department of Homeland Security, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.
As it stands, all four shootings to one firearm and investigators don’t believe there was any connection between the victims, noting one person was walking a dog and another waiting for a bus when they were shot.
Police discovered a woman in her 40s who had been shot multiple times around 4:45 a.m. on Sunday. While officers were investigating that fatal shooting, a witness reported a 28-year-old man had been shot multiple times nearby. A third victim, a woman in her 40s, was found in the area around 6:50 a.m. She died after being shot multiple times.
Around 7:10 a.m., an elderly man reported he saw a man peering into vehicles. When the elderly man told the person to get away from the cars, the gunman fired at the elderly man, who was shot once and survived, police said.
Detroit Police Chief James White warned residents to be alert and to call 911 if they know the identity or whereabouts of the suspect.
