EASTPOINTE — For the second time in less than a month, an Eastpointe home was targeted in a drive-by shooting by unknown assailants.

The home, located in the 14000 block of Stephens Road, near its intersection with Hayes Avenue, was first targeted June 23. During that incident, a black Dodge Charger passed an occupied vehicle parked in the home’s driveway, turned around, opened fire and fled, according to police. Investigators said that although several rounds hit the victims’ car, no one was injured despite the car striking a tree as the four occupants attempted to flee. Police also said that those in the vehicle had no idea why they had been targeted.

The second incident occurred at 1:50 a.m. July 14. Police said they interviewed witnesses and collected evidence at the scene, but none of the victims were able to provide any leads as to the identity of the perpetrators or their motivation. Police added that no one was injured, although several shots were fired into the home, which was occupied at the time.

The Eastpointe Police Department is asking anyone with information on the matter to contact police immediately at (586) 445-5100, ext. 1029.
