(Newser) – "You know who we're looking for." With that, two gunmen in ski masks opened fire on a group of teenagers waiting at a bus stop in Detroit, hitting seven of them and leaving three critically injured, reports the Detroit News. Witnesses say the shooting may be the extension of an earlier argument at a nearby school for ninth-graders.

“I was standing at the bus stop next to him,” said one student who saw a friend get shot. “That bullet came too close. I’m not coming back to this school.” The two gunmen drove away in a minivan and remain at large. The three most seriously injured teens are two boys, ages 14 and 16, and a 17-year-old girl.
