Tear down the basketball courts.
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.
