On June 28, at approximately 3:57 pm, Flint Township Police officers responded to reports of a shooting in the 4200 block of Calkins Rd. between Graham Rd. and Linden Rd. Responding officers located the two victims in the parking lot of Genesee Gardens, 4495 Calkins Rd. They were passengers in a GMC Yukon that was traveling westbound on Calkins Rd., driven by a 30-year-old Flint Township man.
