Car sprayed with bullets killing 2, wounding a third on east side

The shooters sprayed at least 20 rounds into a car.

- A violent scene on Detroit's east side where three people are shot, two of them killed after their car was sprayed with gunshots.

An early morning triple shooting of men sitting in a car on Detroit's east side, Gratiot and Rohns and the cops are looking for the killers.

A woman who heard the gun shots, but too afraid to talk on camera, says around 2:30 a.m. Wednesday, the three victims just got off work.

They were sitting in their car when at least two men unloaded a flurry of shots - police say it could be as many as 30.

"It doesn't surprise me," said neighbor Abbie Woods. "Because we have to deal with (blight), we deal with drugs on the street."

Police don't know the reason for the shooting and are actively searching for two men in their 20s.

Detroit police say that an AK-47 and a handgun were used.
