Police: 7 teens shot near Detroit school


DETROIT, MI – Authorities say gunmen in a minivan opened fire on a group of teenagers waiting at a bus stop near a Detroit school Tuesday afternoon. At least seven of the teens were wounded, including two who are in critical condition.

Detroit Public Schools Police Chief Roderick Grimes says at least five of the teens had just gotten out of summer classes at Cody Ninth Grade Academy when they were shot at the nearby bus stop.

Detroit Police spokesman Rod Liggons tells WXYZ-TV that two gunmen, possibly three, emerged from the green minivan and "asked for a person by name" before they opened fire at the crowd.

The students' names and ages weren't immediately released. The
gunmen haven't been caught.
