Police say two women are in custody after a 17-year-old high school student was gunned down while walking in northwest Detroit this past weekend. 

It happened Friday evening off Meyer and Plymouth. 

Reginald Robinson also known as Reginald Robinson-Foster was crossing Meyer with a friend when Detroit police tell 7 Action News someone in an SUV pulled up and fired a single shot at close range, hitting and killing Robinson-Foster.

He was a senior at Cambridge High School in Garden City and raised by his two mothers, Latrice and Taquanda Foster.

The pair shared memories and videos of him singing and dancing, things they said were his passion.

"If you were in his presence for more than 5 minutes and you didn't crack a smile something was wrong with you,” said Foster.

Police have not released a motive yet, but Robinson-Foster’s family said they can’t understand why he was targeted.

They said he was not involved in any trouble and he was very respectful.

Police say the women under arrest for the crime are ages 25 and 21.
