Two college students shot in Ypsilanti Township, deputies say
Two students — an Eastern Michigan University student and Washtenaw Community College student — suffered non life-threatening injuries after being shot during a fight on Briardale Court in Ypsilanti Township on Wednesday night, Washtenaw County sheriff's deputies said.
Sheriff's deputies and Ypsilanti police officers responded to a report of shots fired at 9 p.m. in the 2000 block of Briardale Court and stopped a vehicle leaving the area, sheriff's department spokesman Derrick Jackson said.
Two gunshot victims, both 19-year-old men, were inside the vehicle, Jackson said. They were taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital, investigators said.
It appears they were shot while they were inside the vehicle, police said.
So far, no arrests have been made in the incident, which occurred in the township's West Willow neighborhood.
Sgt. David Archer said there was at least one shooter, believed to be on foot. Jackson said the victims did not have any weapons.
Investigators continue to interview witnesses to determine how the fight started and who was involved, Jackson said.
