DETROIT – A man and woman were arrested after allegedly firing 16 shots into a home after a baby was called “ugly,”
No injuries were reported in the incident at a Detroit home on Sunday morning. An initial investigation by Detroit police indicates that a 21-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman confronted a 23-year-old woman at her home, which led to an argument with the woman’s 31-year-old boyfriend. The argument escalated and the 21-year-old man retrieved a gun from his vehicle and unloaded it – firing at least 16 shots – into the home. Two young children were inside.
The suspects fled in a white Pontiac, police said. They were spotted later and taken into custody. A weapon was also recovered.
A neighbor told WDIV that there was an infant inside the vehicle. He said it all started when someone called a baby “ugly.”
