However, they said detectives executed search warrants and recovered evidence for their case.

Police said officers were called at about 1:20 p.m. Wednesday to a residence in the 24000 block of Ridgecroft near Stephens and Kelly for a report of a deceased male.

They found in the home's basement a 38-year-old man who had been shot multiple times, according to authorities. The man's death is the first homicide in Eastpointe this year, officials said.
