Police seeking information in Saturday incident near Ballard, Cross streets

One person was hospitalized in a drive-by shooting Saturday near the intersection of Ballard and Cross streets in Ypsilanti, according to a release from police.

The Eastern Michigan University Police Department sent an alert through its campus mailing system early this morning to notify the campus community of the shooting.

According to the release, the incident occurred at 8 p.m., when three non-students were involved in an argument with the suspect behind an un-named business in the area.

“The suspect then fired multiple shots from a handgun at the victims, causing a slight injury to one of them,” the report said. “The victim with the injury was transported to the hospital and released after treatment.”

The release said the suspect was described as an African American male, average height and a heavy build. Police said he fled the area in an unknown direction in an older, “boxy,” silver vehicle—possibly a Ford or Mercury—with a partial black vinyl top.

A dispatcher from the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office said two vehicles had been stopped for matching the description. He said only one arrest had been made, but it was on an unrelated weapons charge.

The dispatcher said the incident occurred at one of the two party stores on the corner, but could not identify which.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to contact the Ypsilanti Police Department at 734-483-9510.
