Two hospitalized, one in critical condition, following shooting on Monday

By Cindy Heflin

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.

Why would the sheriff's office provide that info? I don't believe that transparency means providing the public with specific info on how and how many deputies respond to critical incidents. As a person that has been a first responder to dangerous and deadly situations, I certainly don't want the bad guys to know that info. At least make them figure it out on their own. Its tough enough reacting to an incident let alone posting Anthe news how it willed b done. Can u say ambush?

Sounds like a case of adherence to a "stop snitching" code which places the rights of murderers to kill above the rights of victims for justice.

See today's article regarding the Ypsi High student who was almost stabbed to death by another student. She wa run out of the school because the perpetrators friends felt she was a "snitch". Is it cultural?
