Student banned from suburban school because he was shot in Detroit

A 17-year-old black student has been banned from the grounds of Walled Lake Western High School because he was shot in Detroit last month.

In a letter obtained by Metro Times, school officials told the student’s parents that he can’t return to school because the unknown shooter “is still out there and potentially armed.”

“It’s in everyone’s best interest that Michael complete the required courses for graduation online,” the letter states.

Michael, who asked that his last name not be released, told Detroit police that he was shot in the arm while dropping off clothes at a friend’s house. He said he has no idea who shot him or why. When he spoke with WXYZ, Michael said he doesn't have any plans to press charges against his shooter.

2. In the article, he said he doesn't know who shot him, so can't press charges.

If he's not allowed back in school, maybe the Detroit and Walled Lake police think there's more to the story, and it isn't over. Or maybe the Walled Lake school district is just being racist.
