Two Detroit teens shot and injured when two men have gunfight over who makes the best Kool-Aid

Two men in Detroit started arguing over, of all things, who makes the best Kool-Aid.  The argument escalated, then both men pulled out handguns and started firing.  Both missed each other, but instead hit two teenager bystanders.  One teen was wounded in the wrist, the other in the buttocks.

From the article:

The initial argument, from my understanding, began over Kool-Aid," a witness told reporter Andrea Isom, who confirmed the story with Detroit officers. 
The tongue-lashing increased in intensity until two of the men from the conflicting Kool-Aid crews started shooting each other. 
However, neither shooter hit their intended mark, according to ImperfectParent.com,which reported that two innocent bystanders, both 17, were hit by the stray bullets. 
One victim was struck in the wrist and the other got a bullet in the rear. 
Both victims were taken to local hospitals to be treated for their injuries and both have since been released from the hospital. 
Meanwhile, Detroit police are looking for the two shooting suspects, one of whom reportedly left the scene in a purple 2007 Impala.
