Drive-by shooter gets away after neighborhood crash in Roseville: police
ROSEVILLE, Mich. (WJBK) - Police say the man responsible for a drive-by shooting in Roseville got away after he crashed his car a couple blocks away.
Police say three teens were walking in the 26000 block of Pinehurst Street around 3 p.m. when a green Chrysler Concorde pulled up alongside them. Police say the driver pulled out a gun and opened fire, then drove off.
At least five shots were fired at the trio, but none of the teens were hurt.
Two Roseville Police units happened to be in the nearby area of 11 Mile and Gratiot Ave and heard the shots. They drove in that direction and saw the Concorde speed from Pinehurst Street, turning onto Frazho Road. Officers tried to pull the driver over but the driver did not stop.
The driver tried to make a right turn two blocks later, but lost control on Barbara Street and crashed into a parked car, almost hitting a home. You can see police dashcam videos from the short pursuit in the video player above.
Police say a young black male jumped out of the car and took off running. Police say they saw him throw a gun on the front yard of the home where he crashed.
Meanwhile, police were able to immediately take a juvenile female into custody who was in the front seat of the car. She was later released to her parents.
Police say she and the trio of teen victims haven't been cooperating with the investigation. The male driver got away from police at the scene and they haven't been able to identify him through interviews.
Police do say, though, the shooting is believed to be some form of retaliation for an incident that happened about 3 weeks ago, where someone was stabbed at a party during a fight.
Police took the gun that was tossed on the lawn, but are still looking for the suspect.
If you have any information, you're asked to call the Roseville Police Department.
