Man sent to hospital after shooting at party in Ypsilanti
Ypsilanti police were looking for a suspect in connection with a reckless discharge of a firearm at a party early Sunday that sent a man to the hospital for treatment of an injury.
The incident happened around 1:40 a.m. Sunday at a large party on the 600 block of Emmet Street. Police say the suspect fired a black semi-automatic handgun into the ground near the victim, who was injured when the bullet ricocheted and grazed his right ankle.
The victim, a 25 year-old Ypsilanti Township man, was taken to a local hospital for treatment and later released. The suspect fled the scene before police arrived.
The suspect and victim were strangers to one another, police say.
The suspect is described as a black male in his early 20s, standing 5-foot-7 to 6 feet tall, with a light complexion and wearing a grey zip-up jacket.
