Police have released the name of the 28-year-old Ypsilanti-area man who was shot dead in the West Willow neighborhood of Ypsilanti Township Tuesday night.
Brandon Wesley Charles was found dead around 10 p.m. in the driver's seat of his vehicle, which was parked at a residence in the 600 block of Calder Avenue, police said.
Charles was shot in the torso area, said Derrick Jackson of the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office.
Police received multiple 911 calls reporting the gunshots around 9:45 p.m., including a call from inside the home. Jackson said Charles did not live there.
"It's an acquaintance or a friend's house," Jackson added.
Police don't yet have a suspect. Detectives from the sheriff's office were at the homicide scene late Tuesday night and well into early Wednesday morning investigating.
"We're trying to piece it together," Jackson said.
