Craig said police have had conversations with the one teen who was not struck by gunfire.
He said the last report he received on the three injured teens was that they were recovering. Craig called the shooting "tragic."
The wounded teens were a 16-year-old female, a 16-year-old male and a 15-year-old male.
Police say the teens were smoking marijuana in a car on Philip near Charlevoix, just three blocks from Detroit's border with Grosse Pointe Park.
"A vehicle pulled in front of them, the driver got out of the passenger side and fired several shots," Detroit police spokesman Adam Madera said, adding that crime-scene investigators found 25 to 30 shell casings.
Investigators were initially told the gunman was wearing Army-style fatigues and possibly body armor, but police say they have gotten conflicting statements about what happened.
The victims initially told police they were looking for the brother of one of the passengers and had pulled over in the area of Charlevoix and Philip when the attack occurred. But their statements appear to be in conflict."They're scared to tell their parents what they're doing" in Detroit, Assistant Police Chief Steve Dolunt said today.
He said it appeared the teens may have made earlier stops to buy marijuana and to buy something at a gas station before parking. The shooting could've been connected with drugs or road rage, Dolunt said.
"All their statements don't seem to be meshing," Madera said of the teens.
A spokeswoman at University Liggett School in Grosse Pointe Woods confirmed this morning that the dead girl was a student there.
"As you can imagine, we are heartbroken over the death of one of our students, and our thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends and to the entire Liggett community during this very difficult time," said Michelle Franzen Martin, director of Marketing and Communications.
Harold Meeks, editor of the blog TellusDetroit.com, lives nearby and said he heard a fully-automatic weapon fired Monday night. He said the noise was so rapid, he first thought it was fireworks.
Then he heard it again.
"You can't pull a trigger that fast," Meeks said.

Newsom, 46, lives on the same block where the teens were shot.
He was lying in bed when he heard several bursts of gunfire at about 9 p.m., followed by sounds of cars speeding away. He said he thought he heard two different guns.
"I figured somebody was just shooting," Newsom said, adding that he frequently hears shots fired in the neighborhood. "A lot of people got guns around here."
He said it's terrible and sad that the teens were shot.
Police describe the suspect as a black man, about 6 feet tall, wearing a black hat and army fatigues driving a tan vehicle, possibly a Cadillac.
After the shooting, one of the teens drove the others about 2.5 miles to Beaumont Hospital on Cadieux in Grosse Pointe.
Dolunt said he hopes police get "a straight story" from the teens.
"The kids in Grosse Pointe -- they think it can't happen to them," he said. "People shouldn't blame the people in Detroit; your kids are buying drugs there."http://www.freep.com/story/news/local/michigan/detroit/2014/12/23/grosse-pointe-farms-shooting-lower-east-side/20798333/
