A mass shooting in Detroit has left one dead and at least four injured less than a week after another attack killed two people, police say.
The four injured were taken to hospital, police said.
The shooting happened on the east side of Detroit, Michigan, near Gratiot and Saratoga.
Police and firefighters attended the scene around 11 a.m. Saturday.
Just six days earlier, there had been another mass shooting in the northwest of the city.
Two people died and six others were injured in the shooting.
The two people who had been killed were Toyake Thirkeild, 39, and Andre Willis, 38.
The attack began when a landlord became angry with his neighbors’ guests, Police Chief James White said.
The alleged shooter, Winston Kirtley Jr., has been charged with first-degree murder and assault with intent to murder, police say.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement:
“I’ve always known that sometimes the most insignificant events can cause the heaviest damage.
“The alleged motive here is far beyond paleness and has now changed lives forever,” she said.
Worthy continued: “It is clear and it has been clear for some time that absolutely nothing is sacred when it comes to gun violence these days.
“It is also evident that there is little political will to control the mechanisms behind it.”
