Houston-Whittier & Hayes
Detroit’s East Side (1:30AM): A woman was shot and killed early Tuesday morning @ Hayes & Houston Whittier. Officers were notified minutes earlier of shots being fired in the area. Units of the 9th Precinct started canvassing the area looking for a shooting scene when they were notified on a shooting on Hayes. A caller stated he saw the vehicle riddled with bullet holes but he wasn’t sure if anyone was inside the vehicle.
Arriving officers found a woman shot in the front seat of a burgundy GMC Envoy SUV, appearing to have suffered a GSW to the face.
Detroit EMS was dispatched to the scene, Medic 13 arrived and pronounced the victim deceased.
DEMS Medics were initially dispatched to Chalmers & Houston-Whittier at the Citgo Gas Station on reports of a man with a gunshot wound. That dispatch was soon amended to the shooting location on Hayes. The DPD were checking Green Light location tapes to see if they could identify another shooting victim.
Another 5th Precinct unit notified dispatch that he was flagged down by a man who stated his girlfriend had been killed by others, the dispatch audio is of low quality and it’s difficult to pin down the area, somewhere on Lakepointe.
Witnesses on the scene stated the shooting occurred between Kelly & Hayes, the suspect described as a 6′ Black male, armed with an “AR-15”.
