DETROIT (WXYZ) — Three people were shot, and at least one was killed at a shooting inside a home on the 18400 block of Robson in Detroit early Thursday morning.

Deaonte Clark, 27, was shot and killed according to his family. A 28-year-old man was another victim, and 26-year-old woman, identified as Brandi Brown, is on life support.

We know that at least one person who survived pretended to be dead. Someone who knew all the victims, said that the 28-year-old male victim played dead until the shooter was gone. That’s when he began calling people for help.

A detailed description of the shooter has not been released, but police noted that preliminary information indicated that the shooter was armed with a handgun. Police believe that the shooter knocked on the front door and shot the surviving 28-year-old man before continuing into the house and shooting the other two victims.

“Be careful, trust no one,” said a friend of the victims. “I don’t care if you’ve known them for 20 years, in the city of Detroit you trust no one.”

It’s unclear what a motive for the early morning shooting was.
