A 21-year-old man was shot and killed in Detroit Tuesday morning after he kicked in the door to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment.
Neighbors say the man had been harassing the 31-year-old woman for some time and caused frequent disturbances in the area. In fact, in the short time that she’s lived at the apartment, the man had already damaged her garage door and a window. But when he kicked in her front door shortly after 8 a.m., the woman’s brother grabbed a gun and opened fire.
The ex-boyfriend was struck multiple times in the chest and pronounced dead at the scene. When police arrived, his car was parked on the street and still running.
“It’s very sad that he had to lose his life to a relationship that he didn’t want to break up,” said one neighbor.
Residents say they have called the police on the man numerous times and the woman made it clear to her neighbors that she was not interested in having a relationship with the man.
Police recovered two guns from the scene, although it’s unclear if both belonged to the woman’s brother or whether one was carried by the ex-boyfriend.
