There was a shooting this morning at 6523 Brace St. that resulted in three people being killed. The location is a known drug house, according to published news reports.

Police officers stress that they are very early into their investigation. However, it appears that an unknown individual or individuals entered the home at approximately 5:30 this morning through a basement window in the backyard of the home. The shooter then executed two individuals who were asleep before fatally shooting a third man who was standing outside in the driveway.

After word spread through the neighborhood of this shooting, a crowd of more than 100 people began to congregate outside of this home. The Detroit Police Department, with assistance from the Michigan State Police, managed to maintain order. People were allowed to watch from a distance, but had to had to stay behind a taped-off area to preserve evidence.

This investigation is still on-going. Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Detroit Police Department.
