DETROIT (AP) - Police say the shooting of four teenagers in Detroit may have been a robbery “gone bad.”

A 16-year-old girl from Grosse Pointe Woods was killed and three others were injured Monday night on Detroit’s east side. A parked car full of suburban teens was repeatedly shot by a man in an out-of-the-way neighborhood.

Detroit police spokesman Adam Madera says detectives are “working under the impression it was a robbery gone bad.” He says investigators Wednesday have a better understanding of what happened after interviewing the victims.

Sixteen-year-old Demetrius Herndon says the gunman “rolled right past us” before emerging from the vehicle and shooting. Herndon was shot in the shoulder.

One teen remains in the hospital. Paige Stalker was killed. She was a top student at University Liggett School, a private high school in Grosse Pointe Woods.

Dozens of friends attended a candlelight vigil under holiday lights at city hall Tuesday night. Classmate Alexander Minanov says it’s “just really sad” that Paige’s family has to prepare for a funeral instead of Christmas.
