Detroit police: Dice-game loser shoots winner in drive-by
Detroit — Lime green was the color of revenge after a sore loser at a dice game Saturday night on Detroit's west side returned to the scene of his losses and opened fire on the winner, a 25-year-old man.
The shooting took place about 8 p.m. on Taylor, west of Dexter, and south of Joy Road.
Police say the 25-year-old victim and the early-20s suspect were playing dice, and after the younger man lost, he left the scene.
But he returned a time later in a "boxy" sedan-style lime green vehicle, pulled out a handgun, and shot the winning player multiple times before fleeing.
The victim was listed in stable condition after being privately conveyed to an area hospital.
Police describe the suspect as a black male 21 to 24 years old, 5 feet 4 to 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a slim build. He wore a T-shirt, shorts, and carried a handgun.
