DEARBORN — The Dearborn Police Department is looking for help identifying persons of interest who may have been involved in a shooting at MAYA.
The incident occurred on Monday, Feb. 1 at approximately 11 p.m. when officers responded to the Muslim American Youth Academy (MAYA), located at 19500 Ford Rd. in Dearborn, after learning that a shooting had occurred in the gymnasium.
