Detroit officials blame ‘illegal block parties’ after deadly shootings


Officials in Detroit, Michigan, have decided to crack down on so-called illegal block parties after three people were killed and dozens more wounded in shootings around the July Fourth holiday.

In the wee hours of the morning on Sunday, some 300 people gathered in a neighborhood near the intersection of Rossini Drive and Reno Street on the northeastern side of Detroit. Suddenly, around 2:30 a.m., shots broke out.

‘This is not who we are.’

When the smoke cleared, a 20-year-old woman and a 21-year-old man were dead, and 19 other people — ranging in age from 16 to 27 — were injured, making it the worst mass shooting in Michigan history. As of Monday afternoon, a 17-year-old girl remains in critical condition.
