Gunmen in a green minivan opened fire on a group of teenagers waiting at a bus stop near a Detroit school, wounding at least seven, authorities said. Two were hospitalised in critical condition.
At least five of the teens, including the two in critical condition, had just gotten out of summer classes at Cody Ninth Grade Academy when they were shot at the nearby bus stop on Tuesday, said Detroit Public Schools Police Chief Roderick Grimes.
Two gunmen, possibly three, emerged from the green minivan and “asked for a person by name” before they opened fire, Detroit Police spokesman Rod Liggons told WXYZ-TV.
The students’ names and ages weren’t immediately released.
