One dead after Coney Island shooting in Detroit

DETROIT (WXYZ) - One person is dead after two people were shot at a Coney Island on Detroit's southwest side Wednesday night.

7 Action News caught up with a man whose friend was inside Adi Coney Island at the time of the incident.

"She told me that the robbers came in, unknown, just acting like regular customers and they basically came straight up to the register and told everybody to get down," said Joshua Wright.

Wright says there were three people in the restaurant at the time. While the suspects were at the register, one of the suspects fired at the owner and hit him in the chest, according to Wright.

Then, a patron at the restaurant took out his own weapon and fired at one of the attempted robbers, seriously injuring him.

Sources tell 7 Action News the suspect is dead following the shooting.

The owner was rushed to Henry Ford Hospital, but was released this morning.  He was back at his business visiting with family Thursday morning.
