Two women and a man were shot and killed in Detroit Sunday morning. Police are looking for the suspect.
Police launched a massive manhunt in Detroit in the northern US on Sunday after four people were “randomly” targeted in a shooting, three of them killed, authorities said.
Michigan City Police Chief James White told media that the first three victims — two women and a man — were shot in different parts of the city early in the morning.
After watching the suspect scan the interior of the cars, a fourth man told him to stop before a gun was pointed at him, the cop explained. Three of the victims died and one survived, local media reported.
Photos of the suspect have been released, and authorities are urging anyone who recognizes him to contact police.
The police chief told a news conference that the shooting appeared to be “completely accidental”. One victim was “waiting for the bus, another was walking his dog, another was on the street,” he said.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan said at a press conference that authorities were “scrutinizing several square miles (…), waiting for the individual to reappear.” “This man has already shot four people today,” he warned.
Despite being praised by most Americans, the United States continues to suffer from mass shootings as lawmakers falter in passing gun control legislation.
