Detroit police are investigating after an infant was shot & killed on the city's west side.

The shooting happened Saturday afternoon in front of a home at Winthrop and Clarita, near 7 Mile and Greenfield roads. 6-month-old Miracle Murray was fatally wounded. A 24-year-old man was also shot, but is expected to recover.

According to police, three suspects drove by the house and opened fire with three young children outside. The children were 11 months, four months and six months old.

Persons of interest Jose Jackson and Christopher Long were taken in for questioning Saturday night. Police are now seeking a third man, described as a black male in his mid 20s. He's said to be armed and dangerous.

DPD believe the shooting is connected to an Easter shooting that killed a 3-year-old girl and that the gunmen were trying to take out witnesses to that shooting.
