The man's body was found at about 6 p.m.when a woman friend visited and found him in a house on the 13000 block of Alma, which is north of Houston-Whittier and just east of Gratiot.

Police say the victim was lying on the floor of a house with a gunshot wound to the left side of his face and was already dead by the time medics arrived.
