TUESDAY NEWS HIT - Detroit police are looking for three persons of interest after a child and woman were shot.
The victims were in a vacant area of a strip mall at Gratiot Avenue and Eastburn Street after 5 p.m. Monday when the suspects walked in and started shooting.
The boy, who is 9, was shot twice and is in critical condition. The 27-year-old woman is listed in temporary serious condition.
"We believe the 9-year-old was in that location with the father. There were three young men that came around the corner, tried to go in. When they went inside, they engaged in gunfire. The little boy was struck in the stomach," DPD Assistant Chief Charles Fitzgerald said.
Burger King closures
A Burger King franchisee is in the process of closing 26 restaurants, including 23 here in Metro Detroit.
EYM King of Michigan LLC sent a letter to the state Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity announcing the closures last week. According to EYM, operations are ceasing in Michigan because the franchisee failed to reach an agreement with Burger King Corp.
The restaurant closures began on March 17, and all 26 restaurants are expected to be closed by April 15. These closures will impact 424 workers.

And Wolchek is going to take you on a little undercover road trip to take back a truck before Mark Savage eats up all this guy's profits.
This is Unique Food Trucks and Trailers in Fraser. There are a lot of food vendors' livelihoods on the line there or should we say, IN the lot, there.
But for some reason, Mark Savage, the owner, is taking on more.
Leron says he gave Savage $6,800 to equip the truck, but after little improvement - Mark wanted more.
"I didn't give him any more money, so he got upset and pushed my trailer outside," he said.
