DETROIT (WWJ) – Detroit police are searching for three suspects after a man was shot to death on the city’s west side, just around the corner from where officers were patrolling.
Officers were in the area of Tireman Avenue and the Southfield Freeway around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday when they heard a single gunshot fired.
The officers pulled around the corner of Ashton Avenue and saw three people dressed head-to-toe in black running on foot, and a red Dodge Charger speeding away from the scene.
When the officers moved in closer, they found a man dead in the driver’s seat of a black BMW; he was shot in the head.
The gunman remains at large. Police are currently searching for three suspects.
Glen Stark, who lives across the street from the shooting, said some crime takes place in the neighborhood but it’s usually quiet.
“I never even heard anything,” Stark told WWJ’s Charlie Langton with a laugh. “I guess I must sleep very sound because my window’s open — and they actually shot over there? I didn’t hear a damn thing. I don’t know.”
An investigation is ongoing.
