Shooting suspects still sought

Inkster police are continuing to search for two suspects in a shooting incident last week which took place during a large gathering at a party.

The shooting took place at about 12:25 a.m. Oct. 7, according to police reports at a home on the 30000 block of Carlysle in the city, where a large party was under way. Troopers were dispatched to the location following a report of a shooting. Witnesses told the responding officers that two unknown men approached the large crowd and fired multiple times, wounding three people.  Individuals in the crowd fired back at the shooters, witnesses said.

One of the victims was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his non-life threatening wound by local first responders.

Both shooters then immediately ran from the scene, heading south, according to police reports.

The other two wounded party-goers were being transported to a hospital for treatment when the personal vehicle in which they were riding was involved in a crash at Inkster and Ford roads in Dearborn Heights, police said. Those two, a 32-year-old man from Ypsilanti and a 24-year-old woman, were also taken to a local hospital by EMS responders for treatment of their injuries and wounds, according to police reports. 

The shooting remains under investigation, police said. 

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact the Michigan State Police Metro South Post at (734) 287-5000 or leave a tip on the Michigan State Police mobile app.
