Police: Shooting wounds 3 in vehicle on Detroit's east side

Posted: Updated:

DETROIT (AP) -- Police say a gunman in a vehicle opened fire on people in an SUV on Detroit's east side, wounding three before fleeing.

Sgt. Michael Woody says officers responded shortly after 1:30 a.m. Friday and found three people had been shot on Algonquin St. near E. Warren Ave. & Conner St.

Woody says a 34-year-old man was taken to a Detroit hospital with gunshot wounds to the forehead and forearm. He says a woman believed to be about 33 years old was shot in the thumb and neck, and a 31-year-old woman was shot in the buttocks.

Woody says all were in temporary serious condition.

Police say the shooter may have been in a black pickup truck. Woody says police initially thought a fourth person had wounded, but that turned out to be a separate incident.
