DETROIT, MI – Once again someone tried to extract their anger by using a gun to shoot at others with no real regard for life. This time it all began with a minor car accident.
Detroit police need assistance in identifying and locating two male suspects and the vehicle used in connection to an aggravated assault that occurred on the city’s east side.
On Thursday, August 26, 2021, at approximately 8:30 a.m., in the area of Hayes and Houston Whittier, there was a two-vehicle accident. Due to the aggressive behavior of one of the drivers, the second vehicle involved left the scene. At that time they returned to their home in the 11000 block of Courville St.
Moments later, a burgundy vehicle — possibly an older model Buick with a dent to the driver’s side headlight — stopped in front of the victim’s home firing at least four shots into the residence on the 11000 block of Courville. Fortunately, no one was injured.

Members of the community need to stop accepting this type of behavior from others and turn them. It is the only way that neighborhoods will be taken back from those who place intimidation and fear into those who live in areas where gun violence has become the norm.
