Detroit police say a 17-year-old boy is dead, after he was shot to death after a meet up on social media.

Investigators say the 17-year-old driver and his 21-year-old passenger met a guy on social media and agreed to buy a pair of Mike Jordan's.

They picked up the man this afternoon, and were going to get the shoes, when an argument broke out inside the SUV.

Police say the front seat passenger and the back seat passenger both had guns and started shooting inside the vehicle.

The teenager was shot and killed, while the 21-year-old was shot in the shoulder.

The back seat passenger took off, and now a manhunt is underway for that gunman.

Investigators did recover both weapons at the scene.

This happened around 2:00 pm on Pinehurst on the city's west side right in front of Loyola High School.

The principal tells us this shooting had nothing to do with the school. All staff and students were accounted for this afternoon, but the school went on lockdown for several hours. T

his investigation is ongoing.
