Police believe two weapons were used to fire multiple shots at two people in the parking lot of Eastland Center during the afternoon Aug. 27.

A 30-year-old man and 22-year-old woman were shot when a vehicle containing at least three suspects pulled up and fired multiple times as the victims were on the west side of the mall at about 3:30 p.m.

The suspects fled the scene.

“Harper Woods detectives recovered over 25 shell casings at the crime scene,” Public Safety Director James Burke said in a news release. “It is believed a large-caliber handgun and some type of rifle were used in the attack.”

The two victims were taken to a local hospital.

“At this time, both victims are expected to recover from their gunshot wounds,” Burke said in the news release.

Police said no other information is being released at this time.
