Update:

Police have released the names of some of the victims wounded in last night's drive-by shooting on the 500 block of Summit Avenue in Jackson.

Two of the victims have been released from the hospital. They are 25-year-old Michael Fowler, and 19-year-old Miacha Tillman.

A 16-year-old girl who has not been identified, is at Henry Ford Allegiance Hospital recovering from her injuries. A 20-year-old man, London Truman-Arnold remains in critical condition at the University of Michigan Hospital.

No arrests have been made in the shooting. Police are investigating another shooting that took place on the 300 block of Griswold last night that they say is related to the Summit Avenue incident.

Police think that earlier shootings on Summit Avenue and Griswold Street that took place in May and June of 2016 are related to last night's shooting as well.

Authorities continue to search for a black GMC Envoy in relation to the July 11 shootings.

Jackson's police chief plans to attend a meeting Wednesday night at the King Center on Adrian Street to address community concerns. He says he feels like there has been a spike in crime in the city recently.

Four people were rushed to the hospital after being shot inside a car on Summit Avenue in Jackson Monday night.

Three males and a female were shot just after 9 p.m. in the 500 block of Summit Avenue.

One of the men shot, a 20-year-old, is in critical condition. He was airlifted from Henry Ford Allegiance Health in Jackson to the University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor.

Jackson Police tell us the three other victims, a 19-year-old male, a 16-year-old female and a 25-year-old male, were also rushed to Henry Ford Allegiance and are in stable condition.

The four victims were in a car on Summit Avenue, when police say a vehicle pulled up and sprayed them with bullets before fleeing the scene.

No arrests have been made and there is no description of the suspect or suspects, according to Jackson Police.

Just last month, there was a drive-by shooting in the same area. Jackson Police responded to the 500 block of Summit Avenue in the early morning hours of Friday, June 10th for a report of shots fired. Investigation determined a residence was struck as well as three vehicles.

The hospital was briefly on lock down, but police tell us that was because multiple gunshot victims were being brought inside.

Police say reports of a purging overnight are all untrue.
