Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $2,500 for information in each of two slayings reported in Sterling Heights late last year.

Sufian Saba, 51, was found fatally shot Nov. 27 at Laith’s Candy Land, city police have said. He worked at the wholesale food business with his nephew, Laith Anki, 26, who investigators report also was found fatally shot there on Dec. 1.

Authorities believe their deaths — two of three homicides reported in the Macomb County community last year — are related.

Anonymous tips can be submitted through Crime Stoppers of Michigan by calling 1-800-SPEAK UP, going to or texting CSM and details to CRIMES (274637).
