    Ugly: Seven people hurt in Detroit bus stop shooting

    Seven people hurt in Detroit bus stop shooting - CNN.com


    (CNN) -- Seven people, at least five of them high-school students, were shot Tuesday at a bus stop in Detroit, Michigan, officials said.

    Tuesday's shooting occurred off school property, a Detroit Public Schools spokesman said.

    Two of the victims were in critical condition; the others were in serious condition at area hospitals, Police Chief Roderick Grimes said.

    "Two perpetrators, possibly three, pulled up in a vehicle, exited their vehicle with weapons, asked for a person by name and then opened fire onto the crowd," he said.

    "They got back in their vehicle and exited the scene."

    Police Officer Leon Rahmaan described the vehicle as a green minivan and said the incident occurred about a mile from Cody High School at 2:30 p.m., as summer-school classes were ending for the day.

    The shooters -- both of them male -- covered their faces with either masks or T-shirts, he said.

    The incident occurred off school property, said Robert Bobb of the Detroit Public Schools, who said summer school would continue Wednesday as scheduled.

    "Tomorrow, we'll have new leadership in place at the school," he said. "We want parents to bring their children, have their children continue to come to summer school here tomorrow."

    No one was immediately taken into custody, police spokesman Dan Donakowski said.

    Tragic for the injured; prayers sent.

    What in the world does the school leadership have to do with a drive-by shooting?

    Detroit School Official 'Very Confident' of Arrests in Bus Stop Shooting
    Wednesday, July 01, 2009

    June 30: Bus stop near a Detroit high school, where at least seven teens were shot.
    Police investigating a shooting at a Detroit bus stop that left seven high school students wounded Tuesday reportedly have suspects in mind, and one school official said he is expecting arrests to be made soon.

    Robert Bobb, the district's emergency financial manager, told WDIV-TV on Wednesday he's "very confident" someone will be brought to justice within 48 hours.

    Bobb's comments came a day after two gunmen in a green minivan opened fire on a group of teenagers at the bus stop near Cody High School, authorities said.

    Seven students attending classes were among those shot, according to Detroit Police spokesman Rod Liggons.

    Five of the victims were waiting for a bus after summer school classes let out. All seven were between the ages of 14 and 17.

    Two remained in critical condition Wednesday morning, one was in serious condition, two were in stable condition and two had been released from the hospital.

    Detroit EMS acting chief Jerald James told FOX News on Tuesday that the victims appeared to be in good condition and were talking in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

    The gunmen exited a vehicle and "asked for a person by name" before they "opened fire at the crowd," said Detroit Public Schools Police Chief Roderick Grimes.

    Sad, but it seems like the norm for Detroit. It'll only get worse with Michigan's stepped up releases of prisoners, more cops getting laid off, and major gang tension between rivals in Saginaw and Detroit. Of course Detroit already has enough rival gang problems by itself.

    Detroit has enough problems without including gangs...

    By the way...when is the U.P. going to get rid of the bridge to 'Troll Country'?

    Hahah yep. For all those who don't understand. Those who live in the lower penninsula, we are known as "flatlanders" or "trolls" because we "live under the bridge." People from the Upper Pennsinula are known as Yoopers.

    Bus Stop Shooting
    Suspect Released
    Not Enough Evidence to Bring Charges

    FOX 2 News

    DETROIT (WJBK) - The one teenager in custody for the bus stop shooting is released. Police accused Jamel Turner of being one of the shooters, but the prosecutor says there's not enough evidence to charge him.

    FOX 2 was the first to catch attorney David Jones as he walked into the Detroit Police Department Northwestern District to pickup his client, Jamel Turner. The 18-year-old was a prime suspect in Tuesday's bus stop shooting that left seven teenagers wounded.

    "Apparently they don't have enough evidence like I said yesterday," said Jones. He was right. 24 hours after Turner turned himself into police, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy decided there is not enough evidence to charge him. This despite the fact that police say witnesses picked Turner out from a photo lineup and claimed he was one of two gunmen who opened fire at a Detroit bus stop.

    "They were very confident and brass, in my opinion, at the press conference yesterday about this being... the prime suspect. It went from that all the way to well maybe he was the driver. Now I'm hearing well maybe he knows somebody who was involved," Jones said...
