Detroit police look for gunmen from coney island shootout

- From coney island to O.K. Corral.

Police need your help to identify two men involved in a shootout at the Detroit One Coney Island in Midtown.

FOX 2 received video of two mean trading gunfire on July 18. No arrests have been made in the case yet.

"It is scary for us in here, it's very scary," said Mirela Deda.

Deda has worked at Detroit One Coney Island for eight years. The shooting left her and other workers there, shaken.

"Even if you're armed, I mean what can you do? Nothing," Deda said. "We're just not safe."

Police say it all started with a man making an unwanted advance on a woman at a nearby club. Refusing to take no for an answer, he approached the woman again at the coney island.

A man was shot defending the woman and his friend returned fire.

"It feels like now these days these things are happening all the time," Deda said. "So it feels like it's nothing wrong with it.

"And the other thing is we used to have police officers here all the time. And it's been maybe seven, eight months since we've seen them." 

But right now we need to know if you've seen these guys. If you know who they are please call Detroit police or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
