Green Light Camera Catches Incident
Detroit’s West Side (4:15AM): DPD’s 8th Precinct broadcast an officer safety bulletin advising officers of shots were being fired south of Lahser & Pilgrim early Wednesday morning. Apparently, and I can’t confirm this, while DPD’s Crime Intell were checking cameras they noticed a mini-van, described as a Dodge Caravan, dumping a body on the ground, shooting it and then setting it ablaze at Westbrook & Outer Drive West.
Multiple units were dispatched to the scene and discovered the body, still ablaze. Detroit Fire and Detroit EMS Medic 17 were dispatched to the scene. DEMS Medic 17 pronounced the victim deceased shortly afterward.
Dispatch audio suggests the suspect is a Black male in a gray hoodie. The vehicle was last seen southbound on Westbrook from Outer Drive W. There’s no further description given of the Dodge Caravan or the victim.
