Detroit police seeking ‘three to 4’ suspects in teen’s fatal shooting

Detroit – Detroit interim police chief James White said Friday an 18-year-old woman who was shot dead Thursday on the west side of the city was “caught in the crossfire” and “not the intended target” of the shots she was shooting have killed.

“Beautiful young girl riding her bike up the street – as everyone should be safe,” White said during a press conference at the Detroit Public Safety Headquarters. “She was just a kid.”

The shooting occurred around 4:30 p.m. in Pingree and Linwood on the west side of Detroit when Tikiya Allen was gunned down and a male victim was shot. His injuries shouldn’t be life-threatening.

White said police were looking for “three to four” suspects, although no specific descriptions were offered. The police are looking for a bright red Ford Taurus that the police believe is a special paint job.

“Someone knows who these people are,” said White.

According to a press release, White is also expected to detail the alleged misconduct of two police officers and provide details on a major drug downturn on Friday.
