DETROIT (WWJ) – No rest for Detroit homicide detectives, as investigators are on the scene of an early morning murder in a west side neighborhood.

WWJ’s Mike Campbell reports a 24-year-old male was found shot to death in a silver four-door Ford F-150 pickup truck around 2 a.m. Friday outside of a home on Manor Avenue, just north of 7 Mile Road.

Sgt. Eren Stephens said the victim was sitting in the truck with a female when an unknown male approached, ordered the victim out of the truck and demanded money. A struggle ensued and at some point, shots were fired, at least one of which struck the victim. The suspect then fled the scene. The woman in the truck was not hurt.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20’s, about 5’7,” wearing a black jacket and dark knitted cap. He is to be considered armed and dangerous.

An investigation is ongoing. Identities of those involved were not immediately released.
