The 20-year-old Ypsilanti Township man was found at a home in the 300 block of South Prospect Street, where officers went at 9:30 a.m. to conduct a death investigation. He is believed to have been shot multiple times with a handgun, the release said. Authorities have not released the victim's name. Investigators could not be reached for comment tonight.

An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday morning, according to the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner's Office.

That is way too close to home for me! I hope they find the suspect and that they are brought to justice if found guilty. Prayers to the family. What a loss.

Life cut short, only 20 years old. Glad to hear the Police have a person of interest. (way to many guns in the hands of of some for the purpose of killing). Sad!

It's early with few facts but it seems like there would have been witnesses to multiple shots being fired.
