Three people, including an 11-year-old boy and his father, were sitting in a car when they were shot and injured in a violent triple shooting caught on video, Detroit police said.
The boy, his father and the third passenger, a 30-year-old man, were all hospitalized in stable condition after the Sunday morning shooting, police said.
The victims were parked and sitting in a Chevy Suburban when, at about 8 a.m., a black Chrysler 300 pulled up next to them and stopped, police said.
A gunman then got out of the passenger side of the Chrysler and immediately sprayed bullets at the victims' car, before jumping back into the Chrysler and fleeing.
Police are looking for the Chrysler driver as well as the gunman.
Authorities ask anyone with information to call the 6th precinct at 313-596-5640 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-Speak Up.
New Yahoo News/YouGov poll: Biden's approval rating falls, as both Republicans and Democrats grow more concerned about crime .
Rising worries about crime among both Democrats and Republicans are starting to create a drag on President Biden’s approval rating, according to a new Yahoo News/YouGov poll — and could signal larger challenges for the president’s party ahead of the 2022 midterm elections. The survey of 1,592 U.S. adults, which was conducted from June 22 to 24, found that a significant majority (55 percent) now describe “violent crime” as a “very big problem” in the United States — far more than the share who checked that degree of concern for the coronavirus pandemic (36 percent), race relations (39 percent), the economy (41 percent) or political correctness (39 percent).
