DETROIT, MI – Detroit Police have arrested a 28-year-old man after he allegedly shot another man at a gas station on the city’s west side.
On Thursday, April 26th, 2018, at approximately 12:25 a.m., a 42 year old man was observed by officers yelling and walking in the street in the area of Santa Clara and Burgess.
