CLINTON TWP. (WWJ) – Friends, family and community members will be going door-to-door this weekend as the search continues for suspects in the shooting death of a 26-year-old man.
According to Crime Stoppers, Carlton “Price” Coleman had taken his girlfriend to drop off her children at her father’s house at the Oxford Square Apartments in Clinton Township at around 5:30 p.m. on Friday, March 31.
After the mother took the kids inside, she heard gunshots outside, and returned to Carlton’s car in the parking lot — in the 34000 block of Lipke St. near 15 Mile Rd. and Little Mack Ave. — to find he had been shot. He was taken to a local hospital where he died.
