The shooting occurred at the Citco gas station near Livernois and Puritan. Police are searching for a suspect.

Detroit police are investigating a man's shooting death on the city's east side.

The victim, an unidentified black male believed to be somewhere between 25 and 30 years old, was found dead, just before 12:30 a.m. Thursday, in a field on the 13100 block of Hampshire, said Dontae Freeman, a Detroit police spokesman. That's north of Harper and east of Dickerson.

The victim was found shot twice, Freeman said. The circumstances preceding the homicide were not immediately known. At this point, police are trying to both identify the victim and find his killer.
