A 35-year-old man was fatally shot near his home on Detroit’s east side Tuesday morning, Detroit police said.

When police arrived on the 17400 block of Fleming, east of Dequindre and north of McNichols, they found a man sitting in the driver’s seat of his white, 2002 Buick Century, with a gunshot wound to the left side of his head.

A medic pronounced the man dead on the scene at 1:39 a.m.

The suspect is only described as a male wearing a hoodie, who escaped through a nearby alley.
