Gratuitous Mayhem

Police work the crime scene at Southfield and Warren

The gratuitous drive-by shooting of 7 youths at a bus stop yesterday just after summer school let out is simply inexcusable. It’s not clear if an on-going dispute or gang-related issue attributable to nearby Cody High School or the surrounding neighborhood is what drove this obviously planned assault. But we do know the shooters were looking for someone by name.

Of the injured, 5 attended nearby Cody Ninth Grade Academy. Two are in serious condition.

Today, 18-year-old Jamall Turner surrendered to police as one of the men suspected of involvement. And we wonder why Detroit’s kids are left behind?
