    Gunmen Open Fire On Crowd; 7 Shot

    I'm sure there's more to the story but these cowards had to involve all these other innocent bystanders!?!?!

    Gunmen Open Fire On Crowd; 7 Shot - Detroit Local News Story - WDIV Detroit

    DETROIT -- Seven people were shot Tuesday afternoon at a bus stop at West Warren and Southfield roads on Detroitís West side when gunmen pulled up and opened fire, police said.

    Five of the victims were Cody High School students and had just been let out of summer school. The shooting happened about a block away from the school.

    All the victims were transported to local hospitals.

    Detroit Police spokesman Rod Liggons said two of the victims are in critical condition and the rest are in temporary serious condition.
    The victim's identities have not been released as police attempt to contact their families.

    Detroit Public Schools emergency financial manager Robert Bobb was at the scene and said he was sure parents of children attending summer school at Cody High are worried their children are involved, but that the district was doing its best to notify the victims' families.

    Police said two or three armed men got out of a green minivan and called a person by name before they opened fire on the crowd.

    The men had masks or cloth covering their faces, said witnesses.

    "I fell and all I could do was crawl to the brick wall, and when I got up, I heard at least six gunshots," a witness told Local 4.

    The girl did not want to be identified because she could possibly be a witness in the case. She also said she saw the gunmen pull up and she yelled at her friends to get down.

    The intersection at Warren and Southfield roads remain closed while police investigate.

    Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800 SPEAK UP.

    Police will address the media again at 6 p.m. with updates.
