Police: 7 injured in Detroit riverfront shooting
SF Chronicle ^ | 8/6/2012

DETROIT (AP) — Police were searching Monday for a woman who wounded six passengers as they disembarked from a late-night riverboat cruise on the Detroit River.

The incident along a dock in downtown Detroit sparked a shootout about 1 a.m. Monday as another person retrieved a gun from a nearby car and fired at the woman and her boyfriend, the cruise operator told The Detroit News.

CJC Cruises chief executive John Chamberlain said police investigators told him the woman who instigated the shooting was one of 500 passengers on the popular Detroit Princess and had telephoned her boyfriend from the boat following an onboard argument between two families.

"One woman called her boyfriend and told him to bring a gun down to the dock," Chamberlain told The Detroit News. "She got off the boat, got the gun from the boyfriend and starting shooting at the other family as they got off the boat.

"She really went kind of crazy and the pulled the trigger a lot of times."

In addition to the six passengers shot, the woman's boyfriend was wounded in the back, apparently by the person who returned fire. The boyfriend was in serious condition at a local hospital.

Detroit’s been becoming a target-poor environment for some time. Now....Chicago! Lots to shoot there.

The only thing that keeps the crime rate down in Detroit is that fact that there is nothing left to rob.

“...on the popular Detroit Princess.”

I know this is a serious story, but something about a riverboat being named the Detroit Princess just strikes me as humorous.

Media speculation is that the woman is a 40 year old bald male white supremicist.

The only silver lining is that the idiot boyfriend is in serious condition in the hospital, and thanks to that, they know who this stupid woman is.

Why I’ll bet that they all look like Obama’s sons and daughters...

By the absence of mentioning the womans race, one can only surmize the woman AND her stupid boyfriend were indeed, of color. More than likely Holder’s people.
