Man wrongfully targeted in drive-by shooting in Detroit

All caught on camera, a man in Detroit is shot by mistake while walking to a liquor store.
 
Now police are hoping some of the video of the shooting will generate tips. 
 
According to police, a 50-year-old man was shot in the shoulder and lucky for police, it was all caught on camera.
 
The moments leading up to the shooting show the soon-to-be victim, approaching the entrance of a liquor store on Woodward and Seward at five in the evening.
 
Right before the victim turns the corner, two cars pull up, a man hops out, and opens fire.
 
Corey Jones said the victim is well known to the area. "He came to the door leaning and bleeding. Asked me to help him. I didn't recognize who he was until I looked at him and said Josh? He said yeah." Jones says the victim's name is Josh White, he was there to help him and call 911. 
 
"He's really a good person around the neighborhood, he don't do nothing to nobody," said Jones.
 
Police tell Fox 2, the shooter had a mix up, and shot the wrong person. The suspects are still at large. The victim, shot in the shoulder, is expected to be ok.
 
If you recognize anything in the surveillance footage, or know anything about this case, your asked to give Detroit police a call.
