Detroit police are investigating after a man was found dead in a neighborhood on the city's west side. 

A man was found shot in the head in an early 2000s Cadillac DTS on Marlowe Street, not far from Lyndon. That's near Hubbell Avenue. 

Police were called to the scene around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. 

The victim's niece, Terressa Glaster, told FOX 2 she spoke with her uncle early Wednesday, and he was coming to pick up her husband. She identified him as Jeremy "Jerry" Montgomery and said he would have done anything for anyone.

"He didn't meet any strangers. If you needed something, he would give it to you," "He had six kids. He had a ton of grandkids and I think it's unfair."

Detroit Police are still investigating why and, especially, who shot Jerry. His niece is confident that he probably knew the person who killed him.

"If it was your family, you would want someone to do it. We want you to do that. We want you to call in. We want you to say, who did this. I don't even care why they did this. I just want them caught. Because if they'll do it a person like him, they'll do it anybody. None of us are safe," Glaster said.

The 68-year-old was supposed to go fishing and to a fish fry for the Fourth of July holiday. 

If you saw what happened, Detroit Police are asking for you to call them or you can call Crimestoppers at 1-800-speak-up.
