Superior shooting
Two victims in a Superior Township shooting were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries Tuesday.

Police said witnesses reported a large group of people were standing outside arguing when four to five gunshots were heard. After responding to the scene, deputies were called to St. Joseph’s Hospital, where the victims were being treated.

A 27-year-old Ypsilanti Township resident was shot in the back and a 26-year-old Pittsfield Township resident was shot in the leg.

Aggravated assault suspect arraigned

Deputies said Ousley entered a home on the 900 block of East Michigan Avenue in Ypsilanti Township at 3 p.m., and confronted the resident about some stolen property.

“An altercation broke out between the two subjects,” a report from the Sheriff’s Office said. “The suspect displayed a shotgun (and) the victim ran into the residence fearing for his life.”

Police said the Ousley then went on to break several windows in the home before leaving. Deputies located Ousley, placed him under arrest and transported him to the Washtenaw County Jail.

Only minor injuries were reported, according to police.
