How Detroit Police Followed a Shooting and Caught a 19-Year-Old Suspect

Detroit – The city’s police department is still seeking answers as to why a 19-year-old man allegedly shot four people indiscriminately in the city early Sunday morning, killing three.

At a press conference on Monday, Detroit Police Chief James White described a 24-hour effort to locate the suspect by Detroit police and other law enforcement agencies, including the Michigan State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

White said law enforcement “worked tirelessly” to track the shooting, which officials said essentially amounted to “an active shooter moving around the community.”

Detroit Police Commander Michael McGinnis, whose team is leading the investigation, said the first victim was attacked around 4:45 a.m. Sunday near 7 Mile and Wyoming. McGinnis said the assailant fired multiple shots at the victim in what appeared to be an unprovoked incident.
