Police are investigating a double shooting in Center Line.

Around 4 a.m. Wednesday, officers received a call of shots fired in the area of Theisen and Van Dyke.

The incident began after guests were kicked out of a motel during a birthday party at the Red Roof Inn in Warren. Police say the someone pulled the trigger from inside of a stopped vehicle, striking two 18-year-old men who had just stepped outside of the party.  

Upon arrival, officers located evidence of a crime scene and were told that two victims were at a local hospital with non-life threatening wounds.

So far, authorities are not releasing additional suspect information, nor victim information. Police are working to obtain surveillance video as they investigate a motive for the argument that led to gunshots. 

The Center Line Public Safety Department is asking anyone with information to contact Det/Sgt. Michael Gerald at 586-757-2200 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
