    wow, the comments are interesting on these articles. Random or not? who knows at this point. Sad, yes. No matter what they were doing.

Oh Detroit, my beloved city... what happened to you?... Industry left and so did so so many people. I weep for you, you big beautiful city. And for these teens, who have now witnessed or been part of something they can never forget.

    So sad, so young. Here are two more links. The Free Press one has a little map. Sounds like the police think the survivors have not been 100% candid:

    After hail of bullets, Detroit police, Pointes ask why

    Tom Greenwood and Mark Hicks, The Detroit News 9:11 a.m. EST December 24, 2014

    Detroit — Fear and panic were the emotions felt by five teenagers when their car was approached by a gunman on a desolate Detroit street Monday night.

    When the suspect had finished firing, one girl was dead, three other teens were wounded and the question of why the teens — four from Grosse Pointe and one from Detroit — were on that street and why they were shot began to be asked by police, family and friends...

    I wish there were more good news than bad to report on from the 'D'. DH and I grew up in Detroit in the 50s-60s when the city was vibrant. We met working for the city (Parks & Rec) during the summer of 1967 (riots) when the tide turned. Things have never been the same.

    This is what happens to "magical thinking" teens who think they can stop and use or buy their drugs in the worst areas in their fancy cars and go on with their big plans for the evening. "Nothing will happen to me. Those terrible things only happen to people I hear about on the news." You think you've shown them on the news, discussed it at the dinner table, and those impulsive little teen brains just go on making poor decisions and succumbing to peer pressure anyway. Breaks my heart.

    I'm trying to figure out where they were going to see a movie, if that was really the plan for the evening's entertainment. I don't think there are any movie theatres in Detroit any more, certainly not anywhere that the teens would have been safe. Going to the movies was probably what the teens told their parents when they left home that evening.

    according to some of the comments - there is a theater in GPP, and they may have been picking up a friend in Detroit to go there, but there was nothing showing that Monday evening. I am not buying the "going to the movies" explanation, nor the pulling over to smoke pot. Why pull over? In this cold weather? Right there? Really?

    This is sad, but something happened and the players are not being honest IMO. Even if hypothetically it was a drug deal gone bad - what could have happened? Sheesh.

    My guess it was a drug deal/robbery. Happens all of the time in Los Angeles. White kids go to the hood to score some drugs and get shot and robbed.

    Not accusing these kids of doing so necessarily, but it is a possibility.

    They should have felt fear & panic before the gunman approached.

    I'm white and went to Grosse Pointe schools. Me and my friends use to go into Detroit to buy pot too. A decent amount of GP kids go there to buy drugs usually pot but heroin is also becoming big among these kids. They will buy some pot in Detroit then pull over on a side street there and smoke it like these kids seemed to be doing. What amazed me though when I use to go into Detroit with people is how many of these white kids will stop for a random black guy who flags them down while they are driving through Detroit. These kids assume these black guys just want to sell them drugs and most of the time they do but sometimes they are looking to rob you. Many are naïve and not scared. Most blacks don't really screw around with the white suburban kids though because they want our business we bring them a lot of money.

    The driver of the car with the kids in it should have reversed the car straight backwards flooring it. The driver instead tried to make some type of U turn. It sounds like they were parked on the side of the road and this car pulls up kind of in front of them and a guy with a gun gets out and the shooters car is blocking the kids car from going forward so the driver put the car in reverse but instead of going straight backwards they backed up onto the grass and into a tree and then put it in drive drove forward off the grass and turned onto the road and while they were on the grass the shooter shot at the one side of the car.

    Thanks for sharing. I hope this incident that resulted in the death of a beautiful girl with a bright future serves as a wake-up call/warning to other teens. There aren't many places in Detroit that are safe for teens joyriding around town, and parking in a dark, deserted neighborhood compounds the issue of safety. Thoughts and prayers for the victims' families.

    I don't care what the police are saying. I can't believe the teenagers chose that spot to smoke when a 5 minute drive would have put them in a much safer area. Not buying it. Theres more to this story.
