A murder suspect spoke to his victim moments before lethally shot him Sunday outside a Detroit gas station in what police described as a “random execution for no reason.”
The killing took place around 7.30pm when the suspect gave the victim, who FOX-affiliated WJBK-TV reported was a pan dealer, some money before walking away.
The shooter then went back to the victim and shot him once and fled, police said.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not provided a motive for the killing.
“Many of our killings are people who know each other, perhaps domestic incidents, but in this case it just seems like a random execution for no reason, and that’s very worrying for us,” Detroit Police Capt. James McGinnis told the newspaper.
The station said the victim was a man in his 50s who often hung out near the gas station.
