For the second time this month there has been a shooting outside Eastland Center mall. 

A man was found with multiple gunshot wounds in the parking lot of Eastland Center mall Wednesday night, according to Harper Woods police. The 40-year-old victim was seriously injured, although a witness told FOX 2 that CPR was used at the scene and that the man was in grave condition.

Harper Woods police say that at 6:14 p.m. the shooting victim was found and transported to the hospital. Investigators believe that the victim knew his attacker and had been in a fight before shots being fired.

According to a witness, a silver Chevrolet Malibu fled the area onto E. Vernier towards I-94. There are two suspects, both Black males in their 20s, with slim builds, approximately 5 feet, 6 inches wearing surgical masks, one was wearing a dark hoodie and the other was wearing a light gray hoodie.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call the Harper Woods Public Safety Department at 313-343-2530. Information may also be forwarded to Crime Stoppers at 800-SPEAK-UP.
