“Eight-hundred people and outside that two groups — one fired, the other (group) shot back in an exchange of gunfire,” interim police chief James White said according to WXYZ.

The incident happened around 6 p.m. in the area of Boston and Martindale, Detroit Police told 7 Action News.

“Very unfortunate and unnecessary situation when you’ve got people using gunfire to resolve whatever disputes that they are having,” White said according to TMZ.
