Three people were found dead after a shooting at a home in west Detroit on Friday morning, just days after a gunman opened fire inside a crowded barbershop, killing three men and injuring six.

Police responded to a 911 call around 1 a.m. Friday in west Detroit. Police spokesperson Sgt. Michael Wood told the Los Angeles Times that officers found three people dead.

“All lying on the floor suffering from gunshot wounds, all were pronounced dead on the scene,” Sgt. Michael Woody told the Los Angeles Times.

Two of the victims were male, ages 35 and 32, and one was a 22-year-old female. Woody said they were not related.


He said that the call was likely made to police shortly after the shooting. 

Friday’s killing comes less than two days after a shooting in a barbershop that the city’s police chief called “urban terrorism.”

On Wednesday night, a gunman in body armor opened fire, killing three and injuring six inside the storefront where up to the 30 people were gambling. 

“It is certainly tragic and it rises up to one of Detroit’s more violent incidents,” Police Chief James Craig said at a televised news conference Thursday. “It is certainly a violent act and what I am calling, urban terrorism.”
