Covering a homicide

I spent time today covering an unfortunate homicide case involving a man shot and killed Tuesday night in Ypsilanti Township. I happened to be awake last night when the sheriff’s office sent a Nixle alert out on what had occurred, and at that time I put up an initial story on what little was known at that time.

Through today more was learned, including the identity of the victim and the unique side to the story that he was scheduled to appear in court today as the victim and witness in a separate shooting. Investigators are looking into whether there is a connection between the shootings.
