Ypsilanti police are searching for Marcus Tyree Walker, a 23-year-old man suspected of shooting a 15-year-old boy on Sunday in the city.

The boy was taken to St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Superior Township in serious condition after being shot in the neck Sunday night near the intersection of Armstrong Drive and Armstrong Court, police said. Walker is the main suspect in the case, and police said he’s wanted for attempted murder.

Police said Walker used a revolver to shoot the boy, but the motivation behind the shooting is still unclear.

Walker and the boy know each other, police said.

Anyone with information about Walker’s whereabouts, or the shooting in general, is asked to call the Ypsilanti Police Department at 734-483-9510.

If this is the same Walker I would like to know who decided he was worthy of probation.

There's a Marcus Tyree-Lashawn Walker, age 23, on probation in Washentaw County for Assault/Resist/Obstruct Police Officer. Same guy?

Hmmmmm. Maybe. That is a very common name, especially among 23 year olds.

So Ypsi and Detroit have both declared war on their youth. It seems they are shooting them at a record pace. Disgusting.
