Inkster — A fatal shooting Monday afternoon occurred during a drug deal, Michigan State Police said. 

The shooting took place about 2:50 p.m. in the area of Lehigh and Williams, which is north of Annapolis and west of Inkster Road.

Police said Marquis Hill, 26, and two men met in the area, allegedly for a "marijuana deal," and the meeting turned into a violent altercation.

During the fight, at least one of them pulled a gun and shot the Hill in the back, who died from his injuries. 

A K-9 was brought in to track the pair but was unsuccessful. State police ask that anyone with information on the shooting call and share what they know at (734) 287-5000.

This was the fourth homicide of the year in Inkster.
