Dec 3, 2013

Police are looking for a car observed leaving the scene of a shooting early this morning that left an Eastern Michigan University student with a non-life threatening bullet wound to the arm. 

Investigators say a blue Ford Mustang was seen speeding away from Peninsular Place Apartments after the incident around 1:40 this morning.

Destinee Leapheart was wounded when an apparent random gunshot sent a bullet through the wall and into her apartment. 

Leapheart's roommate, Tammy Flowers, says Leapheart seems to be doing OK now.

Flowers says university President Susan Martin called to check on Leapheart, and is working to find her housing on campus.

Anyone with information is asked to call Ypsilanti Police at 483-9510, or Crimestoppers at 1-800-SPEAK UP.
