DETROIT (AP) - Police say a young man is dead and two people are injured following a shooting at a park on Detroit’s northwest side.

Police say the three were at Fields Playground on Wednesday night when shots were fired from an SUV. The shooting victims were taken to a hospital and a 19-year-old man was pronounced dead. Police say a 16-year-old is in serious condition and a 20-year-old is in stable condition.

Detroit police assistant Chief James White tells WJBK-TV that about 50 people were in the park at the time of the shooting. He says: “I’m happy none of these little kids got hurt. It is a blessing nobody else got hurt.”

Police say three people were in the SUV, which left the scene. Tips are being sought from the public.
