11 people shot in Detroit on Saturday, 1 fatally

In two separate incidents, 11 people were shot in Detroit in a matter of hours Saturday, one fatally.

Ten people were shot at a block party on a basketball court at Webb and Dexter on the city's west side Saturday night. One of those victims died.

Police do not know the reason for the shooting, and are still investigating.

At least three of the victims who were shot were women, ages 30, 45, and 26.

Asst. Chief Steve Dolunt said it's a miracle no children were shot as many were present during the shooting.

As of 10 p.m. Saturday, police were not releasing the identity of the person who was killed

A 46-year-old man is also in critical condition and two other men, 21 and 26 years old, are in serious condition.

Dolunt said police do not know the reason for the shooting and thus far people at the party were not being cooperative with police seeking information.

He said there was no excuse for shooting when kids were present. There were little kids and strollers, he said. "It's a party," he said.

"I think one individual was the target the others just happened to be at this party," Dolunt said.

One person was detained for questioning, but no suspects are in custody, said Sgt. Cassandra Lewis, public information officer for the police department.

One person remained in critical condition late Saturday night; all other victims had non-life threatening injuries, she said.

In another unrelated incident, one man is in stable condition at a local hospital after being shot during a holdup on a gas station in the 20200 block of Van ####### on the city's east side.

Like many areas in Detroit, the area where the multiple-victim shooting took place is a mix of two-family flats and 1930s bungalows, many of which appear abandoned or neglected, yet some occupied and maintained. Across the street from the basketball court where the shooting took place is a church.

The shooting comes one day after, and a few miles away from the Linwood and Pingree area where 5th District Detroit City Councilwoman Mary Sheffield launched the "Occupy the Corner Detroit" initiative to combat violence and empower residents to improve the quality of their neighborhoods.

Mantua Party Shooting Leaves 10 Wounded, Including 3 Kids

Posted: Jun 20, 2015

PHILADELPHIA -

Police say seven adults and three children were wounded in a shooting that involved a shotgun at a party Saturday night in the Mantua section of the city.

The shooting happened around 10 p.m. at Palm and Ogden streets, where a block picnic was apparently being held.

The injured were rushed to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia or Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. All were initially reported to be in critical condition, but most have since been upgraded to stable.

The youngest victim, an 18-month-old girl, was said to suffer a gunshot graze wound to the left side of her neck and was taken to CHOP by police. An 11-year-old girl was grazed in the left knee and right shoulder and was transported by private vehicle. A 13-year-old boy was struck in the chest and taken by ambulance. All three were later said to be in stable condition.

No condition was available late Saturday night for a 26-year-old male who was shot multiple times. But a 46-year-old struck once in the right leg, a 26-year-old hit once in the left side and a 22-year-old with a right arm wound were later reported to be in stable condition.

According to police, at least one shooter turned the corner and open fire. It wasn't immediately clear whether the shooter was on foot or in a vehicle.

Police don't believe the shooter was attending the party at the time but may have been there earlier in the night, and no description was immediately released. Multiple scenes were being held late Saturday, there was no immediate word on a motive, and Southwest Detectives are continuing to investigate.

Police said it was extremely chaotic when they arrived on scene, especially trying to treat the youngest victim, and heavy downpours of rain came as the investigation got under way, FOX 29's Jenni Joyce reported.

Clearly, it will take more guns to put en end to all these shootings, isn't that right, lost?

A black thug goes and shoots up a party and no one talks to the police . that will put an end to the problem right. Must be your community does not want it to end .

Yes, because you only want to talk about when it's black people doing the deed,

Why isn't anyone saying he's mentally ill? 11 shot? Clearly he's not in his right mind. I wonder if when they catch him will the judge say his family are also the victims...

Why is this family friendly and the nickname for Richard isn't Or the medical term for male and female sexual organs? What a hypocritical forum.
