DETROIT (WXYZ) - The crime scene tape has been removed but the memories of what happened on Greenview Avenue early Monday morning may never be erased from the minds of the people who merely heard what took place.
"When you hear pop-pop-pow-pow-pow, you Know it's an AK-47,” said Diane First. She lives almost directly across the street from the home that was targeted just after four in the morning.
Detroit police have yet to confirm what kind of gun or guns were used to assault the home, but they have confirm that at least one of the bullets struck and killed a 9-month-old baby boy who was asleep in the front room.
“I heard about 20 to 30 shots. I wasn't quite sure what it was, but after the first five kept going, you pretty much know, knew what it was. ”
One neighbor, who asked not to be identified says the sound of gunfire is a fact of life in parts of Detroit, but he says the shots usually not so close to his home.
“I ducked down, crouched down a little bit to try to figure out where they was coming from and once I figured out that is wasn't on my block I stood up, but in the process the shots just kept going. ”
Just after four o'clock in the morning the unmistakable sound could be heard for blocks and as a result an innocent baby is dead; killed by what has become a cliché in the city, senseless violence. A term that seems to take on new meaning when an innocent infant is killed.
Police are possibly looking for four individuals in connection with the shooting.
