DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) -

Two more teens fall victim to gun violence in Detroit. One, only 14-years-old is dead, and the other, 19-years-old, is fighting for his life in the hospital.

That 14-year-old victim is Robert Mosby, Jr.

Fox 2's Andrea Isom spoke with his brother, Quartez Mosby, who tells Isom it all started over an argument about a bike.

The brothers were with a friend, leaving a gas station near 7 Mile Rd. and Hayes early Sunday morning. They say that's when a man approached them, then someone in the group exchanged words with the gunman over a bike which prompted a fight that resulted in the shooting. Robert was shot four times.

Shortly after the loss of Robert's life, the family held a vigil in his honor.

At that vigil, witnesses say the same gunman returned and fired shots into the crowd, shooting a 19-year-old who is listed in critical condition.

Detroit Police are still investigating both situations, and have not confirmed the two shootings are related to each other. If you have any information, contact the Detroit Police Department.
