Complaints of drugs, arson at Detroit building concern neighborhood

People in one neighborhood on Detroit's east side have had enough as one building draws a lot of attention with complaints of drugs, arson and many other problems.

For example, on April 6 at 7:10 a.m., police say a man was found right outside the apartment building on his stomach shot at least one time.

"Something does need to happen," said Herbert Jones, who lives there.

The building in the 15000 block of Mack has drawn so many complaints, the Morning Side Neighborhood Association President Pastor Darrell Reed says family members worry about their kids walking up and down the street.

Also in early April, a tenant who was being evicted was arrested for arson after the building caught fire. FOX 2 checked with the Detroit Fire Department, who confirms there have been "multiple fires" there. We tried to track down the owner of the property with no luck.

"We want everyone to have a safe home, a safe place to live, " said Reed.

We asked for specifics on the number of fires, but the deputy commander said we would not be able to get those figures until the morning.
