Ypsilanti man murdered on Facebook live
An Ypsilanti man was shot and killed during a Facebook Live on Tuesday and his mother said the person who shot him was angry about something her son had said online. Washtenaw County Sheriff's deputies taped off a section of the West Willow neighborhood to investigate a shooting Tuesday in Ypsilanti Township.
Authorities have released few details but confirmed a 46-year-old man had been shot. The victim has been identified as Terrell Smith, according to his mother, Genniece Smith. She said her son loved to go live on Facebook to reach people and make them laugh. But Genniece said not everyone found his humor and messages funny.
"Terrell was a comedian. He disrespected people and they got mad. Words can’t kill you..a gun can," Genniece said. While he was live on Facebook on Tuesday, gunshots could be heard in the background. He was sitting in a chair outside the family's home for the stream which ultimately was his last one.
"Two gunmen got out, shot at Terrill. Killed Terrell," Genniece said. Genniece says it was all allegedly over the comedian making fun of a video of someone getting beat down. "My son put up a video of her son getting knocked out," she said. "A lot of people didn’t like Terrell- so what! People cannot kill people for talking." The shooting is still under investigation by the Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office.
Family of Oxford shooting survivor sue gun store
The newest lawsuit in the wake of the Oxford High School mass shooting from last November doesn't just include the district, but the gun dealer where the weapon was bought. Attorney Matthew Turner is filing the lawsuit on behalf of his clients Matthew and Mary Mueller.
They are suing Acme Shooting Goods LLC as well as the school district. Four students were killed and seven other people wounded including the Muellers' son, who survived. They allege the company knew James Crumbley was buying the gun for his son Ethan, who was just 15 at the time.
A straw purchase of a firearm is when a gun is bought by one person for another who is legally unable to get it themselves. "There’s no question that the administration at Oxford had the last best chance to avoid this tragedy," Turner said. "He was actually shot in the hand, the bullet went through his hand into his mouth in his jaw, through his mouth.
FOX 2 stopped by the gun dealer in Oxford on Wednesday. Someone at the business said they were closed.

Ford issues first-ever F-150 Lightning recall
Ford has issued the first-ever recall for its F-150 Lightning electric pickup truck.
A spokesperson for the automaker told FOX Business that the vehicle's tire pressure monitoring system light may not illuminate when intended and may not be able to provide adequate warning of low tire inflation pressure.
"This is because the recommended tire cold inflation pressure value in the Body Control Module (BCM) was incorrectly set to 35 psi rather than the correct inflation pressure of 42 psi," the spokesperson explained. "Low tire inflation pressure may lead to poor vehicle handling and a possible loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of crash."
The safety compliance recall covers 2,666 vehicles in the U.S. and 220 in Canada in the 2022 model year with 20-inch or 22-inch all-season tires. There have been no accidents or injuries connected to the recall to date.
