Detroit – December 18 2018 – 3:37pm: Detroit DPS Police and Detroit Police officers from the 12th Precinct responded to reports of shots fired at Mumford High School on Detroit’s west side Tuesday afternoon.
Officers on scene were told that shots were fired in or near the school by 3 youths, last seen on W McNichols and Ilene, moving in and out of restaurants in the area.
Detroit police officers performed a canvass of the area with unknown results.
No mention of this incident in the local press. As you can imagine, anywhere else in the world this would have forced the media into a frenzy, helicopters and a visit from the governor…
Shootings aren’t unusual in Detroit, maybe that’s the reason why its been ignored. It’s Detroit man, shit happens everyday. It’s just another shooting.
Welcome to Detroit.

And so it goes…
