Man shot and killed in elevator dispute in Greektown

Among the shootings that Detroit police responded to over the weekend was one incident on Monroe Street in Greektown where a confrontation over an elevator turned deadly.

Detroit police say a dispute over one individual not holding an elevator for another escalated to a fatal shooting early Sunday morning. The victim was identified as a 29-year-old man.

Chief James White called the shooting "absolutely ridiculous" and another example of people failing to use problem-solving skills and instead resorting to violence.

"Someone wouldn't hold an elevator door and was ultimately shot," he said during a Monday press conference.

"We need to talk to him immediately," White said. 

The individual is a Black man who was wearing a black shirt, black pants, and a red zip-up. Anyone with information is asked to call 313-596-2260 or 1-800-Speak-Up
