ROSEVILLE, Mich. (FOX2) - A deadly shooting left a man fatally wounded after a basketball game Tuesday.
Roseville police say a fight at Midwest Athletics Basketball City at 1640 Eastland Street, led to a man leaving and coming back with a gun. When he pointed the firearm at the person he had fought with, a second man with a valid concealed pistol license, intervened. After an exchange of gunfire, police say the suspect was seriously injured and was pronounced dead at the scene just before 6 p.m. Tuesday.
Family of the victim claims that there was one shooter who left after an altercation on the basketball court, returned, and gunned down their relative - conflicting with the police version of the story. They say the victim did not have weapon at the time of the shooting and was a CPL holder.
The CPL holder is in custody as the investigation continues.
Police said in a release:
"An altercation occurred over a basketball game. One individual left the building after the altercation was broken up by other patrons. This individual returned a short time later carrying a firearm. He then pointed the firearm at an individual from the earlier altercation.
"At this time, it appears a valid CPL holder intervened. After a brief exchange of gunfire, the individual who left the building was seriously injured and was eventually pronounced deceased at the scene."
