Police are investigating the shooting of a 41-year-old Riverview man that occurred early Tuesday morning in the 27500 block of Huron River Drive.
Huron Township Public Safety Director Everette Robbins said officers arrived on scene within six minutes of a 911 call and found the man, who was driving through the area in his car, shot.
The victim was transported to a local hospital where he underwent surgery overnight and was reported as alert, cooperative, and expected to survive late Tuesday morning.
Robbins said the initial investigation indicates that the victim and a passenger were travelling eastbound on Huron River Drive when an unknown person fired multiple shots into their vehicle.
After being shot, the victim and the passenger stopped the vehicle and the passenger ran to a nearby house and called 911 for assistance.
The investigation is ongoing and police do not have any suspect information to release at this time.
“At this point we are still investigating whether our victim was specifically targeted or if this was a random act. We ask the community to stay vigilant and remain aware of their surroundings. We further ask that if anyone should see anything suspicious or have any information on this incident, please call our department immediately,” Robbins said.
Information regarding this investigation can be directed to the Huron Township Police Department Detective Bureau at 734-753-4400.
