Man shot to death in Pontiac parking lot, 26 rounds fired
PONTIAC, Mich. (FOX 2) - The Oakland County sheriff said at least 26 rounds were fired when a man was shot to death in a Pontiac gas station parking lot.
Sheriff Michael Bouchard announced an arrested on Monday, saying the suspect was taken into custody within three hours of the murder of the 45-year-old man. The body was found on pavement near Cherry Hill Drive and West Fairmount Avenue in Pontiac.
According to Bouchard, the victim and suspect got into an argument though the exact nature is not known. It ended with the victim being shot and killed and more than two dozen gunshots fired.
The family of the man who was shot dead are, quite obviously, devastated by the loss of their loved one, who they identified as Raymond Davis.
"This ain't nothing new," said one neighbor who knew the victim. "All I can say is ‘Pontiac.’ Nothing new."
Responding police and other emergency authorities attempted lifesaving procedures, but were unable to revive the man.

Police taped off much of the neighborhood where the shooting occurred due to the large amount of gunfire that was reported.
An autopsy is scheduled for the victim despite Bouchard saying the cause of death was obvious. He said it's a requirement.
The suspect's name was not released.
