The woman died in the emergency room, while the men were both listed in serious condition.
It is unknown at this time if the murder on Van Dyke is connected to the one on Monday evening.

In August of 2018 Nyree Henderson and her baby were kidnapped at gunpoint after her ex-boyfriend dragged her down a flight of stairs and assaulted her multiple times. She was sleeping in her upstairs bedroom with her one-year-old in the same room when her ex-boyfriend broke into the home through her kitchen window.
Early Mothers Day morning, in the first incident, a 24-year-old woman was gunned down in the 3400 block of Van Dyke near Mack also on the east side of the city.
An investigation into both homicides is ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detroit Police Department’s 7th precinct at (313)-596-5700 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SpeakUp.
