Daughter says Southfield carjack slaying 'broke my family'

The daughter of a Southfield man who was fatally shot during a carjacking said the incident "broke my family."

On a GoFundMe page, relatives identified the victim of the Sunday night slaying as Fredric Hudson.

His daughter, Jasmin, told The Detroit News late Monday that Hudson "was a selfless man and a father figure to many, and he left behind two kids and his wife. They were married over 20 years. He loved bowling and helping others. Whoever did this has broke my family."

By Monday night, the GoFundMe effort had raised more than $4,300 of a $20,000 goal.

Police have identified the victim as a 48-year-old Southfield man.

The shooting took place about 7:50 p.m. on the 26000 block of Primary Drive, south of 12 Mile, west of Franklin.

Southfield police arrived to find the victim in the driveway with gunshot wounds in his chest and thigh.

Police believe the man was carjacked and shot as he arrived outside the home. A white 2013 Toyota Tundra was stolen in the incident.

Police have no shooter description to offer. They ask that anyone with information on the fatal shooting share what they know at (248) 796-5500.
