This smells and smacks of a 'gang hit'. Numbers do not matter, just a name being asked. This mass shooting of young people reminds me of how federal government agents and U.S. regular military (using armed gunships and snipers from Fort Bragg) slaughtered and murdered 17 children along with many other adults, including parents in Waco, Texas not long ago. Apparently the 'Gang-Banger' shooters in Detroit watched past film of the feds shooting and slaughtering the children in Waco, Texas, and learned how to do it well. Dr. James P. Wickstrom, D. Litt.

Slideshow:Teens shot at Detroit bus stop
DETROIT – Gunmen in a green minivan opened fire on a group of teenagers waiting at a bus stop near a Detroit school on Tuesday, wounding seven including two who were in, authorities said.
Five of the teens had just left Cody Ninth Grade Academy, where they were taking summer classes, when they were shot at the nearby bus stop.
The gunmen exited a vehicle and "asked for a person by name" before they "opened fire at the crowd," said Detroit Public Schools Police Chief Roderick Grimes..
Detroit Police were looking for two suspects in a green minivan, said spokesman Rod Liggons. Officers were interviewing some of the victims in the hospital Tuesday evening, he said.
Four boys and three girls ranging in age from 14 to 17 years old were hospitalized, two of them — a 16-year-old boy and a 17-year-old female — in critical condition, said Deputy Chief James Tolbert.
Gas station owner Steve Hakim said he saw two people with T-shirts covering their heads run across his lot toward the bus stop. Then he heard about 10 gunshots, saw a boy and a girl fall down and called 911
"It's pretty scary," Hakim said. "Somebody's got to do something."
Police were reviewing video taken from the gas station's security cameras and took a disc containing the footage, Hakim said.
Another summer school student, 15-year-old Bria Wilson, said she was standing at the bus stop when she heard the gunfire. She said she was facing away from the shooters and ran away after the shots were fired. But she saw a 16-year-old male friend lying on the ground, bleeding.
"They were so close — it almost hit me," she said.
Schools spokesman Steve Wasko said there was "nothing that we're aware of at this time" linking the shootings with any fight or dispute at the school.
