Detroit Man Shoots Eight, Kills Two Over Cars Parked for Birthday Party
Tragedy struck a birthday party in Detroit when a man opened fire in the early morning hours.
Two more senseless murders occurred over the weekend at a Detroit home. On Sunday, July 31st around 2:40 am, a man opened fire on a group celebrating a birthday. The incident started after the shooter became upset with the parking situation at the home across the street, where allegedly one of the cars could have been blocking his driveway.
After a confrontation about the parking situation that became heated, the man fired multiple shots into the crowd. Reports say that shots were fired from both the first and second floors of the home. In total, eight people were struck and two of those people are now dead.
One 38-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the scene and another 39-year-old victim died at the hospital today (Monday, August 1st.) Of the other victims, one remains in critical condition and some others are in serious conditions. While most of the victims were in their 30's, one victim was only 19 years old.
Police were able to take the man into custody without incident after the shooting. In the suspect's home, police found 11 other weapons placed around the home in a strategic manner. The shooter also has a military background according to reports.
I just couldn't imagine being in a situation like that because of a parking situation. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of those involved. Just another tragedy that we don't need in this world.
