The Rib and Soul Festival was in progress at Hart Plaza at the same time and a group of eight black males, and one black female was recorded on surveillance video walking east on Jefferson crossing the entrance ramp for the Detroit Windsor Tunnel.

Three of the groups most noticeable members are:

  • A black male wearing a red shirt, dark pants and red shoes. He was carrying what appeared to be a long blue light saber or glow stick that blinks.
  • A black male wearing a white t-shirt, white hat and tan pants.
  • A black male with no shirt and blue jeans.

There are believed to be many witnesses of the robbery and the shooting.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 800-SPEAKUP.
