DEARBORN — Police are searching for a man involved in a shooting incident in the area of Hubbard Drive and Southfield Freeway Oct. 29.

About 3:45 p.m. officers responded to the scene when the victim said he and his family were stopped at the traffic light eastbound Hubbard at Southfield. A dark colored vehicle pulled up alongside the victim’s vehicle, when the driver revealed a handgun and began shooting at the family.

The victim was able to flee with no injuries to him or his family.

A suspect description was provided and police are requesting the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.

The shooter was described as an Arabic male, in his 20s or 30s with facial hair.

Anyone with information regarding this incident can call Dearborn police at 313-943-2241 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 800-773-2587. Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspect in this case.

“This crime is particularly disturbing because there were small children in the victim’s vehicle when the shooting occurred,” Police Chief Ronald Haddad said. “This type of crime is most unacceptable and motive is not certain.”
