Sgt. Geoffrey Fox said deputies are still talking with the two men who were hospitalized but have not gleaned much information from them to this point. The two men are both in stable condition at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital.
One of the men was shot in the knee and may have been hit by a car and the other man was hit by a vehicle, police said Tuesday. The man who was hit by a vehicle drove the man with the gunshot wound to the hospital before returning to his apartment on Chestnut Drive. He was taken to the hospital by Huron Valley Ambulance from there.
The shooting occurred about 10:45 a.m. Tuesday at an apartment in the 300 block of Bedford Drive in the Huron Ridge Apartments. The complex is near Clark and LeForge roads near the campus of Eastern Michigan University.
Two men were seen leaving the area on foot. They were described as black men with short hair and thin builds, wearing black T-shirts and blue jeans. Police do not believe the incident was a “random act of violence.”
K-9 units from the sheriff’s office scoured the area behind the woods Tuesday afternoon.
Deputies sought a search warrant for the apartment on Tuesday. It is not known if the search was executed since the shooting.
