a shot-up, pink 2003 BMW 760Li remained in place in front of the drive-thru window with several bullet holes in the front passenger's side window.

Now the guy's got Mary Kay as a partner. Any problems, he goes to Mary Kay. Trouble with the bill? He can go to Mary Kay. Trouble with the cosmetics, deliveries, Tammi, he can call Mary Kay. But now the guy's gotta come up with Mary Kay's money every week, no matter what. Business bad? F**k you, pay me. Oh, you broke a nail? F**k you, pay me. Lipstick got hit by lightning, huh? F**k you, pay me.

Pink Beemer, 10:00AM, bank drive through, suspect in hoodie, at least 7 shots fired, in the city.  Typical Friday in Detroit.

And for you "the City's not that bad!" idiots, there's this gem...

"His co-worker, Detroit resident Jerry Miller, instinctively threw himself on the ground when he heard the shots.
"I grew up on the northwest side of town," he said. "It's a natural reaction."

While a natural reaction, if they were shooting at you, you'd already be hit by the time you heard it.

Not one mention of drugs in the article.

Not one.

I wonder what other conclusions you've drawn.

Depends on the caliber and round.  Some are subsonic so you may actually be able to duck in time.  Highly unlikely, though, as the difference in the two velocities is likely to be so minimal it wouldn't work.

Something with "mass" was shot at.  If we're going to be stupid on defining "mass shooting" I'm taking it to the next level.

It is if its done with an assault pistol.

It's about getting the hell out of the way. Unless you're the target, or it's a mass shooting, the shooter doesn't care about you one way or the other.

Six bullet holes. Looks like a compact auto or a six-shot wheel gun, assuming the shooter emptied it.

Unlikely to have been a derp gun:

This is why Ken never borrows Barbie's pink convertible. There's too many dolls, action figures, and plushies out there with a grudge.

Seven shots sounds like a gang kill. A pro hit man wouldn't need that many, a random loon wouldn't have stopped at seven.

I'm not saying it was GI Joe, but it was GI Joe.

No I don't. If you survive Detroit and Chicago's South Side, the middle east will be a cakewalk.

I always get annoyed with the media when they spew out a "description" like this.  If it's not going to help, then why bother?

911: "911, what is the nature of your call?"
Panicked person: "yes, I want to report a tall male wearing a hoodie"
911: "is it a distinctive hoodie, ma'am?"
PP: "I think it's distinctive...or is that distinguished?  Damn, I can never remember those two..."
911: "ma'am, is this an emergency?"
PP: "yes, I know I just saw the shooter!  He's walking down...oh, wait, there's another tall male wearing a hoodie"
911: "is his hoodie more distinctive than the first guy's hoodie, ma'am?"
PP: "I don't know, that's a pretty subjective question.  It's definitely cleaner.  Oh, wait!  There's another one! Oh my God! It's a hoodie-wearing shooter epidemic!"

Oh the burbs are still fine (I lived in Grosse Pointe in my youth and family is still there).  But the city is still a crap hole.  Downtown and Midtown have some life in them but the actual streets where people live are terrifying at night.  Some of my friends that bought in once decent neighborhoods to be part of the "solution" have gotten the F out.  No police response, barely functioning city services, corrupt business climate and a host of other issues have motivated them back to the burbs or other parts of the county.  Heck, the damn streetlights don't work in the city and haven't for ages.  Once the sun goes down and you're in a sketch neighborhood - watch out.

/The police chief was almost carjacked a few weeks ago.  Although that might have been BS.
