    Unhappy Very Bad: 1 Student Dead, 3 Wounded In Shooting Near School (Detroit)

    BREAKING NEWS: 1 Student Dead, 3 Wounded In Shooting Near School - Detroit News Story - WDIV Detroit

    DETROIT -- A retaliation shooting outside of a Detroit high school Thursday afternoon has killed one student and wounded three others, said police.

    Police said three boys and a girl, who is only 5 or 6 years old, were shot while walking home on Greenfield and Pembroke roads, just a few hundred feet away from Henry Ford High School on the city's northwest side.

    Detroit Police Chief James Barren said the shooting was in retaliation to an incident that happened earlier in the day.

    Barren said a gunman, using a high-powered rifle, drove by as the students were walking and fired several shots.

    A witness told Local 4 he heard at least 12 or 13 gunshots, and then he saw one of the boys was shot in the eye. The wounded boy ran up onto his front porch, said the witness.

    "To see your friends getting their heads shot off like that…it's horrible," said student Tierra McKelley.

    All of the children were transported to Providence Hospital. The three other children's conditions are not known.

    Police said they know who the shooter is, but they do not yet have him in custody.

    Anyone with information is asked to call the Detroit police.

    Man, that sucks. Need more info, how old was the shooter (if known). Are all 3 kids who were hit 5 or 6, or just the 2 survivors?

    Sick either way. I remember, back in the day, catching up to someone later on to work it out with fists, not lead.

    Caught the News headline, they said that several teens were shot...no mention of a 5 or 6 year old. Didn't see the story though, just the headline.

    Must've been a while ago... Isn't the current Chief a female?

    My bad, I found this that indicates that she quit just over a month ago.:

    Resignation

    On September 4, 2008, Bully-Cummings announced her retirement minutes after Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick pleaded guilty to two counts of perjury and resigned from office as part of a plea deal. Bully-Cummings offered to assist her successor in transitioning to the duties of Police Chief if asked to do so.

    Tell me I'm not the only one whose first thought was "gang-related".
