The Shooter Gave No Warning
Detroit’s West Side: The Detroit Police Department’s 10th Precinct responded to 9122 Dexter last night at around 11:03PM on reports of a shooting.
Reports indicated multiple people were shot and multiple Detroit EMS rigs were dispatched to the scene.
Video of the shooting shows 8 people inside the lobby of A Eagle Coney Island on Dexter. Five people, 4 men, including the shooter and a woman were at the counter. 3 other male Blacks were either sitting or standing in the lobby conversing.
Seconds into the video, the man at the counter pulled out a handgun from his right pocket and shot 1 man in the head, then 2 other males standing in the lobby next to the counter. The woman at the counter was not shot. There didn’t appear to be an altercation between the shooter and his victims, he just whipped out the handgun and started firing.
As the shooting unfolded, 3 males inside the lobby ran through the front door followed by the woman at the counter. The shooter followed, firing outside as he started to flee.
The shooter then turned his attention back to the 3 males laying on the floor of the lobby and started firing on them again. He then left through the front door and into the parking lot.
