Detroit police say a 15-year-old girl was shot and killed in front of a home early Sunday morning when the girl's family confronted a driver to tell him to slow down.

Following the confrontation, the man pulled out a gun and began shooting. 

The 15-year-old girl was shot in the stomach and taken to a local hospital where she died in the emergency room.

A family member at the scene got in a car and tried to chase down the suspect, who is believed to be driving a 2007 Chevy. During the chase, the family member lost control, hit a pole and was rushed to the hospital.
