An elderly woman believed to be the grandmother of the suspect involved in a drive-by shooting in Eastpointe on Tuesday, has been apprehended in relation to the incident.

The incident occurred on the 16000 block of Forest Avenue around 1 a.m. No one was injured when Tyler Michael Fistler, 21, allegedly fired multiple shots into the home, according to Detective Lt. Alexander Holish. Authorities located the suspect at his residence in Casco Township, where he and another individual later turned themselves into law enforcement.

The Eastpointe Police Department’s Detective Bureau, Special Investigations Unit, and Special Response Team conducted a thorough investigation and successfully recovered hidden evidence belonging to the suspects, thanks to the cooperation of the homeowner. The homeowner was subsequently apprehended.
