DEARBORN HEIGHTS, Mich. (WXYZ) - An early morning shooting rocked a quiet Dearborn Heights neighborhood. It happened sometime before 5:00 a.m. on Westpoint St., waking neighbors and raising questions.
A man was injured. His current condition isn't known.
At this point police are calling this shooting an accident but that description of events could change before the investigation is complete.
“We got woke up to sirens and flashers in the bedroom window,” says Cynthia Woods.
She lives two doors down from the home where the shooting occurred. She describes the people who live at the home as nice, even calling them good neighbors.
“I have a motorized chair and me and my husband couldn't get it in and he came running up to help me and said anytime you need help just holler,” she says.
But other neighbors who declined to give their names paint a different picture; saying the police have been to the home in the past.
But, they say nothing as serious as what happened this morning has ever occurred.

Battle-fatigued and suddenly bipartisan, the House voted Thursday night to ease across-the-board federal spending cuts and prevent future government shutdowns, acting after Speaker John Boehner unleashed a stinging attack on tea party-aligned conservative groups campaigning for the measure's defeat.
