Detroit. Liquor store. 11 pm.
All three of those things scream “niggers.”
What was this man thinking??
Detroit police are searching for two people wanted in connection to the fatal shooting of a 77-year-old man who was leaving a business Saturday night in the 16200 block of Schoolcraft.
Police said the man was leaving the business just after 11 p.m. when he was robbed and shot. He died from his wounds.
The shooting was caught on store parking lot surveillance video. Police are looking for two people who are shown in the video.
Both suspects are described as black males, and both of them were armed with a handgun. One of them was wearing a light colored baseball hat with a white brim, a dark colored hooded jacket with light stripes on the arms, and black and red gym shoes.
The other suspect was wearing a knee-length black jacket with a hood and black boots.
The victim has been identified as Lewis Putrus, 77. He was leaving D & D Liquor Land on Schoolcraft around 11:07 p.m. Saturday when he was shot and killed. The Midwest Independent Retailers Foundation is offering a $10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for Putrus’ murder.
