Detroit: An eventful Saturday/Sunday morning in Detroit, a couple of fatal shootings, a mini barricade on the SW side of Detroit and a police officer has stones chucked at him while attempting to clear an out of control party.
A man was privately conveyed to Henry Ford Hospital early this morning around 2:30AM and succumbed to his GSW’s. The scene of the shooting is still kind of up in the air, but it appears as if the fatal shooting may have occurred in the area of Buena Vista & Appoline on Detroit’s west side. Originally officers though the shooting may have taken place at 16th & McGraw, but officers were unable to locate a scene. I’ll update if more information is provided.

Another fatal shooting may have occurred on Detroit’s west side in the area of Fenkell & Ilene. DPD units were dispatched to reports of several people shot at around 2:15AM Sunday morning and I believe someone may have been fatally injured. Dispatch audio mentions a fatal shooting but I haven’t been able to confirm it…because I’m tired and lazy this morning. I’ll update this also if more information becomes available.
Detroit Police Officers from the 4th Precinct were called to the area of Central & Navy on reports of a felony assault on a female early Sunday morning around 6:00AM. The suspects, described as 2 armed black males retreated into a residence on Navy. Police officers swarmed the area and established a perimeter around the house. An officer was able to establish contact with 1 of the 2 suspects and the suspects surrendered. Both are now in custody and the injured female received medical attention.
An incredibly large party in the area of the Lincoln Art Park caused some residents some grief early Sunday morning around 1:00AM. Hundreds of cars and people packed the area, requiring the DPD to sort of shut it down. So many vehicles and people were present that multiple units were required. One of those units attempted to herd people off the railroad tracks southeast of the art park. While doing so, people starting chucking rocks at him. Thankfully the officer was uninjured. The party soon dispersed…or will, probably in August.
