Man shot, killed at Highland Park bus stop

A man was shot and killed Wednesday morning while waiting for a bus in Highland Park.

- Police are still investigating several hours after a man was shot and killed at a Highland Park bus stop Wednesday morning.

It happened at the bus stop along Woodward Avenue and Tennyson Street around 5:30 a.m. Wash Wesley lives nearby and said he couldn't believe it when he heard the news.

"It's a darn shame you can't stop at a bus stop and earn a living and go to work every day and somebody shoots you. That's crazy," Wesley said.

A few people were waiting for the bus on Woodward at Tennyson when someone pulled up, started shooting, and killed Stanely Carter.

Police say they know they're looking for: 50-year-old Malcolm Benson, of Detroit, is a person of interest. Police say he was at the bus stop which means he could be a witness or could be the killer, Chief Kevin Coney said.

"It's a possibility he could be the shooter, could be a witness, we don't know yet. We just want to talk to him and find out what exactly he saw at the scene this morning at 5 o'clock," Coney said.

Carter, of Hamtramck and is in his 40s. He was apparently just heading to work when he was killed.

"He worked in a place in Sterling Heights for approximately five years. I was told by the family that he walks every day from his home in Hamtramck to the bus stop in Highland Park," Coney said.

Officials ask anyone knows anything or saw something to call police.
