Sterling heights detectives investigate a man's death in front of the Walmart near 14 mile and Van Dyke

Michael Francis, a resident of Sterling Heights, says he wondered what so many police were doing at the Walmart location and would soon discover that a man was found dead. 

"I live just down the road here; I've been here for like 15 years we usually don't see this kind of stuff here around here," says Francis. 

Sterling Heights police say they are launching a full investigation and don't have any other information at this time.
