Suspects At Large After Gunning Down Brothers On Detroit’s West Side


DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are searching for a pair of suspects after two brothers were gunned down during an overnight home invasion on the west side.

The incident unfolded around 11:30 p.m. Thursday in the 14000 block of Ashton, along the Southfield Freeway near Schoolcraft Avenue, after a family — a mother with broken leg, her daughter, three sons and a family friend — had returned from grocery shopping.

The brothers helped their mother inside the house and were unloading groceries and packages from their car when they were approached by three suspects, who were dressed in all black with two wearing ski masks.

What happened next remains under investigation. Police say the brothers were marched back inside the home at gunpoint. The group eventually ended up in the fenced-in backyard of the home, where shots were fired. The family friend was able to get back inside the home, find a gun and fire back at the suspects, who fled the scene.
