STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (WXYZ) — Sterling Heights police say a suspect wanted for shooting two women outside a former Ruby Tuesday restaurant on Friday died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

The shooting happened around 1:15 p.m. in the parking lot on Van Dyke Avenue on Friday afternoon.

The victims were reportedly transported to a nearby hospital and are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
