Slaughter in Detroit. 16 shot, 7 dead in 24 hours.


From Detroit News…

A 14-year-old boy was shot and killed Saturday night after police released details about a 24-hour spate of shootings in the city that left six others dead and nine injured.

Detroit Police say the juvenile was shot around 6 p.m. Saturday in the 4600 block of Coplin while he and an 18-year-old boy were playing with a gun that went off. The bullet struck the 14-year-old, killing him.

Police said the suspect is in custody and the weapon has been recovered.

The shooting follows nine others that occurred between 6 a.m. Friday and 6 a.m. Saturday.

At one scene, five people were shot, police said. At another, three people were shot. The remainder of victims were shot at separate locations.

One other victim was in critical condition, one in stable and the remainder in serious condition at area hospitals.

The city was on pace for 350 murders this year, according to an analysis by The Detroit News. In a city that has lost 25 percent of its population since 2000, that could put the year on pace to reach the highest per-capita rates in a decade.
