say they are narrowing in on the man they say is responsible for an early morning shooting at on Thursday that left two men injured.
The alleged shooter, a 41-year-old Wyandotte man, is known to police and could be in custody within days, Police Chief Daniel Grant said.
According to Grant, the man was inside the bar, drunk, picking fights with other customers at about 2:30 a.m. He walked outside and allegedly struck a 61-year-old Taylor man over the head with the butt of a gun.
After firing one shot into the bar through a front window, the alleged shooter took off north down Sixth Street and fired two additional shots, Grant said.
When the shot was fired into the bar, Grant said, a fragment of either the bullet or glass grazed a man inside. He was not seriously injured.
The man who was pistol-whipped was taken to and later transfered to Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit, where he remains being treated for non-life threatening injuries.
Detectives have already interviewed the man, but plan to talk with him again to seek additional information, Grant said on Friday.
Detectives also have spoken to a number of witnesses as they work toward a warrant for the man's arrest.
"We know who the shooter is," Grant said. "He is someone we have had frequent contact with. ... It won't be hard to find and apprehend him. He's what we call a frequent flier."
Grant said the man could be charged with assault with the intent to murder and possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony.
"We'll present our case to the (Wayne County) prosecutor's office and see what we get," he said.
