Two were injured Sunday morning on Young Street in Ypsilanti, near the intersection of Miles Street and East Michigan Avenue, in an incident of both shooting and stabbing currently under investigation by Ypsilanti Police Department's (YPD) detective bureau.

One of the victims, a 23-year old man from Romulus, was discovered with a stab wound in his abdomen when police arrived on the scene Sunday at about 4:30 a.m. Another victim, a 19-year-old man from Ypsilanti Township, was treated at a local hospital for gun shot wounds police say was connected to the incident on Young Street.

Both men are listed in stable condition, according to YPD.

After receiving a search warrant, the Washtenaw Metro Area SWAT team and Crisis Negotiation Team (CNT) assisted local police in attempting contact with those inside the house. After two people exited the house, SWAT officers entered and determined there was no one else inside.

Ypsilanti Police reported investigation into the incident is ongoing.

UPDATE: Five fired on in shooting near campus
Five people, ranging in ages 15 to 27, were shot at Saturday at 8 p.m. near the intersection of Cross and Ballard Streets in Ypsilanti by the driver of what victims told police was an older, “boxy” style silver Mercury or Ford with a half-fabric top.

Victims told YPD officers they had gotten into an argument with the suspect near the 300 block of Jarvis Street about 30 minutes prior to the drive-by shooting. They told police the driver of the car pulled up near a party store where they were standing at Cross and Ballard, fired multiple rounds, and drove off to the south.

One person was injured in the shooting, by a bullet that grazed the hand, but has been treated and released from the hospital. The YPD's detective bureau is investigating the shooting, but has not yet identified a suspect.

Officers stopped a vehicle matching the victims' description a few blocks away from the crime scene and arrested the driver on weapons charges, but later determined the driver had not been involved in the shooting.

Residents of a home on Ridge Road in Superior Township reported to the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office (WCSO) Sunday evening that the residence had been broken into and video game system and prescription drugs were missing.

The WCSO reported entry was gained through a side window and two teenage suspects were identified with the help of witnesses in the neighborhood. All property was recovered and the case has been referred to the prosecutor's office.

A sheriff's deputy responded to a report of three teenage men carrying a large TV down Lakeview Drive, a street inside the Lakeshore Apartment complex in Ypsilanti Township, Saturday afternoon.

Deputy Cratsenburg reported finding the location of the burglary, all stolen property, and identifying three suspects in the incident. The WCSO said the burglary is still under investigation and anticipates releasing further information at a later date.

Ypsilanti Township residents on the 2600 block of International Drive reported a burglary Saturday afternoon in which an air soft gun and Chinese meditation balls were taken from their home.

The WCSO reported entry was gained into the home by kicking in the front door and said suspects are unknown at this time.
