Man slain, 2 children wounded in Detroit shooting

AP  |  Detroit (US) 

Two children have been wounded and a man shot to death outside a home on Detroit's east side.

Police say two men ran toward the man about 7:40 a.m. today and fired multiple shots as he stood at the driver's door of a vehicle. The children were inside the vehicle.

A 10-year-old girl was shot in the shoulder and a 14-year-old boy was hit in the face with bullet fragments. A 12-year-old boy in the vehicle was not wounded. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police says the children's mother ran from the house and drove them to a hospital.

He says about a dozen shots were fired from a high-powered handgun or rifle. No arrests have been made.
