CHESTERFIELD TWP., Mich. (WXYZ) — Chesterfield Twp. Police are looking for a man who opened fire on construction workers Thursday night after an argument with a woman turned violent.

Around 8:00PM at Gratiot and Carriage Way, police say an unknown man and woman were overheard arguing in a liquor store parking lot.

“Young lady screaming to get out of the car, she kept repeatedly yelling at him to get out of the car,” said Brandon Card, a construction worker who was working across the street at the time. “And he was yelling back at her”

Card said after listening to the two argue for about 30 seconds, he shouted that the man should get out of the car. He did, but when he emerged Card says he was wielding a gun.

After firing a round up in the air, Card says he saw the man “lower the gun sideways and start popping. All I could think was, let’s just get away from the car.”

The video seems to show the gunman firing across a busy street. After firing the shots, the man left in his vehicle.

Detective Julian Lee and the Chesterfield Township Police are now investigating the shooting. If the gunman is found, he could face serious charges.

“In the video, his intentions are pretty clear,” Lee said. “It could be attempted homicide. It just depends on what his intentions were.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chesterfield Township Police at 586-949-3426.
