RIVER ROUGE (WWJ) - Two people were killed and another was injured when shots rang out at a public housing complex in River Rouge.

The shooting happened late Thursday night at the River Rouge Housing complex on Beechwood Street between Visger Road and Eaton Street. 

Three people were inside a townhome when the shooting occurred. Two people were fatally wounded and one person was taken to the hospital. 

Reporting live from the scene, WWJ's Mike Campbell said multiple evidence markers led from the street up to the door of a townhouse. Investigators were also working the alleyway behind the complex.

Information on the victims has not been released.

Other circumstances, including what prompted the gunfire, weren't immediately clear. It's also unknown if police have a suspect.

Jade Barker lives across the street from where the shooting took place.

"I don't know who lives in that apartment, but the person who do own that apartment his name is Dorian. And he's been living with a young lady that lives on our side, her name is Precious, and I know that they've been together. That's his apartment but he stays with her, so I don't know who's in the apartment," she said. 

The shooting remains under investigation.
