WYANDOTTE – The investigation continues into a man who allegedly fired gunshots at a neighborhood bar June 7.

According to police reports, A 41-year-old Wyandotte man allegedly fired three shots, one of which went through a window and hit a 61-year-old Taylor man outside of Frank’s Cafe, 3852 Sixth, about 2:30 a.m. that day.

Police Chief Daniel Grant said Friday that the man was grazed in the head by the bullet.

A patron was hit with glass, but required no medical attention.

Witnesses said they saw the man with a black semiautomatic handgun.

The victim was transferred to Henry Ford Wyandotte Hospital and then to Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. As of Friday, Grant said he had been released from the hospital.

“He’s a very lucky guy,” Grant said.

According to published reports, the victim was described as “uncooperative” and did not wish to press charges.

Grant said the victim has since been more cooperative, and a warrant request for his assailant was being prepared Friday.

Grant said he is working with the alleged shooter’s lawyer, who has said the man plans to turn himself in once the warrant has been issued.

Grant has said that the department plans will pursue charges, which could include unlawful discharge of a firearm.
