Two hospitalized, one in critical condition, following shooting on Monday
A 25-year-old man shot during an argument at the Village Grove apartments in Ypsilanti Township early Monday morning remains hospitalized in critical condition today, Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office spokesman Derrick Jackson said.
The second man shot, a 19-year-old, is in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, he said.
Deputies were called to investigate the shooting at 2:50 a.m. after two men entered an apartment in the 1100 block of S. Harris Road uninvited, and an argument began, Washtenaw County sheriff’s deputies said in a news release Monday.
Deputies have interviewed the victims to the extent possible, considering their injuries, Jackson said today, but have few leads in the case.
“The victims, to be quite honest, have not been very helpful,” Jackson said. “There are a lot of questions to be answered. Hopefully we’ll be able to get a witness or some neighbors or someone to come forward.”
Jackson said the suspects and victims are acquainted, but police have not been able to determine why the suspects came to the victims’ apartment.
“We’re not sure what prompted the altercation or what led to shots being fired,” he said.
Police don’t have good descriptions of the suspects or information about how they fled the apartment after the shooting, Jackson said.
