DETROIT – A 10-year-old girl was hospitalized on Saturday night after a drive-by shot on the east side of Detroit.

Authorities are trying to find out if the car was the intended destination or if the family was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
“Unfortunately we are in this eternal force of arms, a kind of Wild West out here. When I say multiple casings, I see handgun projectiles and whatever could be rifle rounds even though they could be fired from a handgun, ”Cmdr. said Eric Decker. “We need help from the public. We have to take these guys who are walking around in the street and shooting at guns, and that comes from the cooperation of the police and the public. “
Police said they needed public help to identify the suspect, who was driving a four-door dark red Cadillac.
The 10-year-old girl was taken to the hospital. According to the police, she is in a temporarily serious condition.
