Seven Teens Shot at Detroit Bus Stop Near High School

Two gunmen in a green minivan opened fire on a group of teenagers at a bus stop Tuesday near a Detroit high school, authorities said.

At least seven students attending classes at Cody High School were among those shot, and three of them are in critical condition, according to Detroit Police spokesman Rod Liggons.

Five of the victims were waiting for a bus after summer school classes let out. All seven of the victims were between the ages of 14 and 17.

Detroit EMS acting chief Jerald James told FOX News that the victims appeared to be in good condition and were talking in the ambulance on the way to the hospital.

The gunmen exited a vehicle and "asked for a person by name" before they "opened fire at the crowd," said Detroit Public Schools Police Chief Roderick Grimes. Detroit Police were looking for two suspects in a green minivan, said spokesman Rod Liggons.

Another summer school student, 15-year-old Bria Wilson, said she was standing at the bus stop when she heard the gunfire. She said she was facing away from the shooters and ran away after the shots were fired. But she saw a 16-year-old male friend lying on the ground, bleeding.

"They were so close — it almost hit me," she said.

A woman was seen being handcuffed and taken into police custody, but it was not known whether she was a suspect in the shooting, according to local reports.
