Possible drug deal behind triple shooting in Detroit that killed 2

Two people are dead and a third is in serious condition after a triple shooting on Detroit's west side.

According to police two men, ages 28 and 31 were found shot dead at a home. The third man, a 26-year-old, had been shot in the leg and abdomen. Police say described his status as "fighting for his life."

"When we arrived, like I said the male was in the street and then once EMS conveyed him a short time later, there was another male that exited the house and said there were others that were shot inside," said DPD Capt. Michael Chambers.

Police were called to the home, located on 15000 block of Washburn near Chalfonte Street.

Broken glass found outside was determined to be at the site where the 28-year-old man died after being struck in the head. A woman who was in the car with the man was not hurt. 

Sources told FOX 2 that the 31-year-old man had a ski mask on when he was found dead inside the home. 

"We're trying to still gather the particulars as to what actually happened in the house," said Chambers. "The male that gave us the statement said he was in another part of the house so we're still trying to piece things together to find out what went on."

"I was asleep and all of a sudden, it was just the loudest assault rifle sounds and I got up - there were two sets of them. The first was a quick burst, then like 10 shots," said one neighbor. "But they were loud. Real loud."

Police have been investigating the scene since about 3 a.m. Friday. 

Among the possible motives is a drug deal gone bad, according to police sources. Law enforcement is canvassing the area for surveillance footage to offer some kind of indication about what happened.

The 26-year-old is in the hospital and has life-threatening injuries.

No arrests have been made.
