3 killed in shooting at Detroit home

- Police are continuing to investigate a triple fatal shooting on Detroit's west side.

Police say it happened early Monday morning at a home in the 6500 block of Brace Street, which is near Warren Avenue and the Southfield Freeway. Police say two of the victims were found inside the home, and the third was found outside in the driveway.

Police aren't sure how many suspects they're looking for right now, as it is still early in the investigation. They're not sure of a motive yet, though they tell FOX 2's Robin Murdoch they do not believe the shooting was random. Neighbors called 911 around 5:20 a.m. after hearing several shots.

"This is a known narcotics location. We've raided it twice, I believe, in the last month," Detroit Assistant Chief Steve Dolunt said Monday morning at the scene. Police say there were also signs of forced entry in the basement.

One of the victims has been identified as 25-year-old DeAngelo Smith Owens. His mother was at the scene, and told reporters this is the death of her seventh child.

At least one fight almost broke out at the scene of the shooting in the aftermath, forcing extra officers to be called in to help with crowd control.

The other two victims have not been named, though police say they were all males and that victim found in the driveway could be as young as 15 years old. 

If you live in the area and saw or heard anything, you're asked to give Detroit Police a call.
