5 shot on Detroit's west side, suspects still at large

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -- Detroit Police are searching for up to five suspects who shot five people on Detroit's west side Saturday.

The shooting happen around 5:30 p.m. at a home on Strathmoor Street, in the area of Hubbell Street and Fenkell Street.  Police say a group of four to five young black men were walking by the house shooting.

Police believe the men were targeting a specific house, but neighbors say at least 10 rounds were fired into two homes next door.

Five people were injured in the shooting, including an 11-year-old girl who was playing outside of her house and a 3-year-old who got cut by shards of glass.  One victim remains in serious condition.  No one was killed.

Sources tell FOX 2's Erika Erickson that in the past two and a half days there have been 21 non-fatal shootings in the city of Detroit, including one at the same house on Strathmoor two days ago.
