Man in custody after teen shot, killed at grad party
A 20-year-old Eastpointe man was in custody in the shooting death of a Clinton Township teen at a graduation party in Roseville early Sunday, police said.
According to police, the shooting took place at 12:40 a.m. in the 29000 block of Callahan.
By Sunday afternoon, police announced that they had taken a suspect into custody. More information was expected to be released when the suspect appeared in court, possibly Monday or Tuesday, said Roseville Deputy Chief Donald Glandon.
Police said an initial investigation found that shortly before the shooting, there was an argument at the house. Three or four individuals were asked to leave, police said. The reason for the argument was unknown.
According to police, after two vehicles containing seven or eight people returned to the house, party-goers came outside and both groups began to fight. One of the suspects shot at least five rounds from a handgun in the direction of the party-goers, police said.
The victim, an 18-year-old male from Clinton Township, was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have not released the victim’s name.
Police impounded one suspect vehicle, a silver Pontiac G6. Suspects also were seen in a dark-colored vehicle, possibly blue or black sedan, police said.
A relationship, if any, between the victim and the suspects, was unknown, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Roseville police at (586) 447-4484 or (586) 775-2100.
