(WWJ) Detroit Police are asking for assistance from the public to identify and locate three suspects wanted in connection to a non-fatal shooting and carjacking on the west side.

Police say three suspects (two armed) got out of a car in the middle of the parking lot at the location on the 24500 block of W. 8 Mile, near Telegraph, around 10:30 p.m. February 13th.

Two of the suspects approached a man, 32, as he was walking toward his own car. As the victim walked to the driver’s side, one of the suspects (#1) fired multiple shots at him, according to police.

Afterward, the victim stumbled a short distance in the parking lot and collapsed on the ground. The shooter returned to his Dodge Charger (pictured below) while the second suspect ran east through the parking lot.
