An 18-year-old Ann Arbor resident was found dead, with a gunshot wound to his body, on Tuesday afternoon on Ann Arbor’s west side, police said.

Indications are the man was killed in broad daylight.

At about 3 p.m., at the Pinelake Village Cooperative on the 2700 block of Adrienne, a maintenance man found a body on the path between two complexes, said Lt. Matthew Lige of the Ann Arbor Police Department.

Investigators canvassed the area and learned that witnesses had heard what they believed to be a single gunshot fired about 45 minutes before the man was found, Lige said. But no one called police.

At this point, the suspects remain unknown, as does the motive.

Police confirmed the victim’s identity as Jordan Klee.

In a message to affiliates of Ann Arbor Public Schools, superintendent Jeanice Swift said that Klee had “passed away suddenly.” The high school senior attended Ann Arbor Pioneer, and Slauson Middle School and Bryant and Northside elementary schools before that, Swift wrote.

Grief counselors will be made available to anyone who needs them, Swift wrote.

“Please reach out and support each other,” the superintendent wrote. “Remember that this hard news affects everyone differently ... we will need to remain vigilant for all those who may be struggling across our community now as this is a particularly tragic and challenging time.”

In late April, a 20-year-old man was shot on the same block.
