Few clues in shooting at Detroit party that killed 1, hurt 9 – STLtoday.com

DETROIT (AP) — Detroit police say they have few leads in their investigation of a shooting at a block party that left one man dead and nine people wounded.

Police say someone opened fire about 8:30 p.m. Saturday at a children’s party on a basketball court on the city’s west side. No children were injured.

Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt says about 400 people attended the party. Police haven’t identified the 20-year-old man who died.

Dolunt says that six men and three women ages 21 to 46 were wounded. Police say a 46-year-old man was critically injured.

Dolunt told radio station WWJ-AM on Sunday that police “don’t have much” to go on, calling it “very disheartening.”

Police Chief James Craig says officers will canvass the neighborhood Sunday in search of leads.
