In Detroit, a man and a woman were shot to death inside their car while a baby was in the backseat. The baby was unharmed as the police search for the two men who committed the crime.

According to Newsweek, the men are are wanted for the double murder of a couple at a Detroit gas station. The gunmen approached the vehicle on both sides of the car and shot both victims to death while the baby was strapped in the backseat. Both victims died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Newsweek also reported that the double homicide that took place was the city’s seventh and eighth deadly shootings in October. This was also the city’s first time since September 12 that two people were killed slain in the same incident of gun violence.

The trend has attracted the attention of Michigan governor Gretchen Whitmer, who in August announced a $75 million program that aimed to reduce violence across the state.

She said the money would be used to hire and retain officers, remove illegal guns and provide more education and job training, according to The Detroit News.

“We are working together to address the crime increases we’ve seen across the state and across the country,” she said during a press conference.

As of Tuesday morning, police officials had not mentioned the possible motivation for the crime committed and no arrests had yet been made.
