Detroit police are looking for four armed suspects in an early morning deadly shooting on the city's southwest side.

Family members identify the victim as 17-year-old Antonio Raines.

"All I know is he was shot, my other brother got a phone call to come get him, and when he came and got him he was already shot," Tiffany Raines said.

Police say the teen was shot near Michigan Avenue and Burton, near The Sting nightclub just before 1:30 a.m.
A witness told police he saw two vehicles pull up to the victim's vehicle. Four people got out and fired shots into it before taking off.

A brother was driving the 17-year-old to a local hospital when Dearborn police pulled them over for speeding near Tireman and Wyoming. The teen was pronounced dead.

Police believe there was some kind of fight leading up to the shooting. Grieving family members say they can't make sense of it.

"Now we have to go through with the burial, right before the new year," Raines said. She said her brother had a one-year-old baby and he was going to school.

The investigation is ongoing.
