Detroit police say a prayer vigil on the city’s west side turned into a deadly family feud with several people shot, a car wreck and multiple suspects under arrest.

“It appears we have eight people shot; two in custody, fleeing the scene; five in custody at the hospital that, instead of going to show support, decided to act stupid–we had to lock them up; and we have three weapons we’ve recovered,” Detroit Assistance Police Chief Steve Dolunt told WWJ’s Mike Campbell.

As the vigil was wrapping up, a vehicle drove by and a gunman opened fire on the group of people standing outside. At least eight people were struck by gunfire; one man was killed.

Maurice Westley lives behind the house where the shooting took place.

“There was a short intermission and then I heard a different type of gun going off. People were screaming and yelling and banging on doors. The shots went off, back and forth for like five minutes, or even longer,” he said. “It’s a mess but I’m not surprised at all, not in this neighborhood.”

When officers arrived on the scene, a vehicle was speeding away from the home. Police pursued the vehicle for about two miles until it crashed into a fire hydrant and front porch of a home at Burt Road and West Chicago Avenue, near Rouge Park.

Police say a woman in the vehicle was ejected and declared dead at the scene. Another passenger who was in the back seat of the car is hospitalized in critical condition. Two other passengers were arrested.

It appears everyone involved in the shootout knew each other, Dolunt said, but other circumstances aren’t clear. At least one assault rifle was recovered.

Police Chief James Craig said getting information from witnesses has been a problem for investigators, who are still trying to figure out what led to the shooting.

Senovia Alexander thinks the woman killed in the crash was her cousin, but she said police aren’t giving her any answers.

“We heard that there was a car crash. We have no idea of who was chasing them or nothing. They’re not letting us in the hospital, they’re not letting us identify the body. They asked us for a picture, we showed them a picture and we’re still left without no information,” she said. “They’re not even letting mothers to the people that’s at the hospital in the hospital at all. Our rights are being tooken (sic).”

Multiple relatives of those involved were also reportedly arrested at the hospital after an altercation broke out.

      Shut the hell up, you idiot. Please, investigate injustice in this country against people of color. Because our side would be much better off if you were an advocate for them, instead of for ‘us’, as you are. Or at least as you would claim you are.

          I said that to my poor sister when I came home from federal prison, and she said “Mike’s talking like a n-word.”

          “Lisa, we don’t use that word here,” was the response from our mother.

          “But he’s talking like a n-word.”

          That was the funniest practical joke I have ever played. I am sorry, but I had to do it. I had spent three years locked up, and felt I deserved a good laugh.

  • LHathaway

    Despite all the claims of police brutality, this could be a case of them not having faith in police. They know if justice will be done, they will need to take it into their own hands. Or perhaps these people, mentally, feel themselves so far removed or against police authority, they would never call the police. They won’t be happy till everyone in Detroit is black. They seem well on their way to making themselves happy. At which point state officials will ‘oppressing’ them. Even when no one left in the state is white, the legacy of dead whites will be cause of all problems even from the grave.

  • Alexandra1973

    And once again I was just on the phone with my mother, who still lives in the Detroit suburbs, and once again I was suggesting she sell her house (which is paid for) and come down to Ohio. Get some more white flight going, ya know?

      I read on vdare that the respectable middle-class blacks in Southfield don’t want the similarly- complected ghetto gang coming into their suburb.

    >>>”Our rights are being tooken.”

    Oh, come on! Did Senovia really say “are”? I suspect that CBS has cleaned up that quotation and that she actually said, “Our rights is being tooken.”

    • tlk244182

      Which raises the question “tooken by whom?”

      • [Guest]

        Senovia say, “Da white man done it!”

      • Paleoconn

        If the question were raised, it be ‘tooken by who’ not ‘whom’.

    Senovia Alexander thinks the woman killed in the crash was her cousin, but she said police aren’t giving her any answers.

    Need I restate my theory about how black people don’t know who they’re really related to for all the “papa’s maybe-ism?”

    • dukem1

      A maybe daddy! Great new term!…Could catch on like “aspiring rapper”!

    • blanjm5

      I contend that there is a lot of incest in the hood, seeing as they could hook up with their half siblings without knowing it, since no one knows “who dey daddy be.”

      • Bingo.

        Aside from the facts that blacks are just plain violent by nature, I think there’s another reason. If I said the reason, I would be treading on HBD Chick’s territory. That said, maybe on some instinctual level, ghetto blacks gang up with people because maybe they have a subconscious gut feeling that they’re closely related. And as we know, or as HBD Chick has taught us, places where tight endogamy exist(ed) are/were known for their violence. There is one estimate that before white Europe turned close cousin marriage into a social pathology, its murder rate was on par with modern East St. Louis, around 100 per 100k.

        • none of your business

          I read the article by HBD Chick on the Christian church transformation of Europe by marriage laws that split the nuclear family from the endogamous clan mess. Very complicated, lots of info of which I am totally unaware.

      • Nancy

        I’ve said before, that inner-city elementary school on MLK Blvd where I taught had about 6 males impregnating all the females in the apartment farms. This school was so “inner-city”, it didn’t even have any school buses. All the chillins walked to school. At least a handful of Baby Mamas would forge their offsprings’ birth certificates, trying to sneak them in to kindergarten a year early for the free babysitting. But they’d get “outed” by other Baby Mamas, mainly because they all shared the same sperm donor, the kids were all related, and the Mamas generally resented/envied each other. “Dat Shitavious ain’ no five yeah ol’! He be FO’! Me an his Mama be pregnan’ at da same tahm, an my lil Chlamidi’a birt-day not til Nobemmber twelf!”

        The kindergarten class would shrink by at least 4 or 5 kids the second week of the school year, once the 4-year-old imposters were sent packing.

  • Blacks fight and kill each other over the silliest things. They really have no business being allowed into civilized countries. I often wonder if the tendency for Middle Easterners to be volatile is due to the admixture of black genes in them. Certainly, the mongrelization of Brasil must have something to do with the level of violence there.

    • JohnEngelman

      The Arab slave trade existed for centuries longer than the European slave trace. Arabs castrated male slaves. They cut of the penises of black male slaves, just to make sure. Nevertheless, they had sex with black female slaves. That is how Negro genes got into the Arab genome.

      • China imported black slaves, but only castrated males. Women were expressly forbidden. The intent was to keep China’s bloodline from being contaminated. You’re not totally wrong about them being rather smart.

        • JohnEngelman

          The Arab slave trade was far more cruel than the European slave trade. Blacks who convert to Islam do not know that.

          • Paleoconn

            Jews were prominent in the so-called White slave trade.

          • So were Presbyterian lowland Scots.

          • Paleoconn

            Sure, but we ONLY hear about the Whites’ involvement, Whites like the Presbyterian Scots.

          • Nancy

            To be fair, Blacks who convert to Islam don’t know LOTS of things. But then again, neither do ordinary Blacks, so…

        • DiversityIsDeath

          Very smart of the Chinese to castrate the bucks. That’s what the Whites should have done to the negro slaves here– castrate the males. That would have prevented a lot of problems from un-neutered bucks running around. But if all bucks were neutered, then the slavers would be unable to breed more slaves. They could have castrated 99% of them, and kept their best 1% as breeders. Hell, it should have been a law.

          • B.A_2014

            That would have breached their ( nonexistent ) human rights. That mentality is engrained in the white man and I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that when the topic was discussed during the era when blacks actually worked there was your typical white liberals talking about not all blacks all cowardly brutal rapists, thst it is a minority and it would be unfair to deprive them of their muh dikk.

          • none of your business

            Some historians claim the reason they were left intact was it was felt it was just too mean and cruel, also it was a Turkish and Arab practice not worthy of Christian slave owners. Also caused a lot of deaths and no one wanted to risk the death of a valuable piece of property. The real reason was probably the colonists wanted to populate the country as quickly as possible. Also if they were no black men around, by the third generation the slaves would be octoroons and able to run off to the frontier like many black slaves and White indentured servants did anyway.

        • Paleoconn

          I had no idea the Chinese had an African slave trade. Thank you for the info MCS.

      • none of your business

        Former President of Egypt Anwar Sadat’s mother was a black slave. The biographies claim she was the 4th wife but she was a black slave.Not so long ago, early 20th century.

    • Nancy

      They’ve been that way since the time of Abraham. Ishmael was the first one:

      “The angel of the LORD said to her further, ‘Behold, you are with child, And you will bear a son; And you shall call his name Ishmael… He will be a wild donkey of a man, His hand will be against everyone, And everyone’s hand will be against him.'” (Gen 16)

        At least the Mohammedans mostly just shoot up in the air.

      • Nancy

        The Muslims wouldn’t hesitate shooting up other people’s funerals and such, but even THEY aren’t known to shoot up people in their own race, religion, and faction (Arab Muslim Sunnis, for example). Their book supposedly forbids that sort of thing.

    I started laughing at the third paragraph and didn’t stop to the end. Just work up some dialogue and the article could be turned into a screen play in a few days. i’m kind of a visual person and I was imagining a scene at the hospital as a horde of screeching blacks stormed the hospital,invaded the lobby and started looting the gift shop and stealing gurneys and med carts all the while howling and yowling about their “cibble righs”

    • Irishgirl

    Whenever you think that blacks cannot possibly get any more pathetic they will always but always manage to surpass themselves by doing something even more pathetic.
    A harsher man than me might even describe blacks as being the ultimate in comedy.

        I like your avatar. Franco or Pinochet?

        • none of your business

          General Franco, my hero!!!!!!!!

          • Paleoconn

            Truly a hero and a patriot. To think that the pusillanimous, globalist elites who run Spain today are taking down statues of him and renaming streets that were once dedicated in his honor, this infuriates me.

          • none of your business

            Only 2 countries, Finland and 1930’s Spain ever whipped the soviets in battle. And how the liberals hate Franco for that.

          • Paleoconn

            God bless the Germans and their Luftwaffe for helping Franco against the commies. When we prevail in the end, and we will prevail, all our heroes will be restored and the commies and their liberal useful idiots will be flushed down the memory hole where they belong

    Only among blacks does a funeral turn into the scene of a mass shooting. This alone is good reason for whites to separate themselves from the black undertow.

            I noticed one day last summer (trying to escape the urban jungle) that many gas stations in the all-black parts of Atlanta had no gas. There was no “shortage” to speak of, at least not in our areas. I assumed it was due to the drivers being less than willing to drive there and risk getting shot at or robbed.

            Curiously, many of the empty pumps had cars parked at them. And there were people sitting in the cars. This wasn’t a one-off, either: three different gas stations had the same scenario. I can’t imagine what they were doing.
