Nearly 40 bullets fired in double murder, suspects arrested after chase
CLINTON TOWNSHIP, MI – Two women died after two men reportedly waited and then opened fire on them, firing nearly 40 rounds.
Victims Dazhane Holloway, 19, and Dionna Davis, 18, both died at the scene, FOX 2 Detroit reports. When police arrived at Knottingham Flats in Clinton Township on Friday evening, suspects had already fled in a stolen Dodge Hellcat. A one-year-old child unharmed by one of the victims was found in a vehicle.
Two male suspects who neighbors say had “complicated” relationships with the victims were taken into police custody after a chase, the TV channel reported. Police pursued the Hellcat on I-94; the chase ended when the vehicle crashed into a utility pole at Eight Mile Road and Gratiot Avenue. Both men were injured in the crash and were taken to a local hospital. Two handguns and a long gun were found in the stolen Hellcat.
The suspects are expected to be brought to justice today in Macomb County 41B District Court for first degree murder, court records show. The charge carries a penalty of life in prison without parole.
