"Earlier in the night I heard what sounded like an explosion, or gunshots. I don't know I've never seen something like that happen in the city. From what I can tell it's like a gangland style killing, something that doesn't happen in Eastpointe," said Jacob Richards, a neighbor in the area who made the initial call to 911.
The identity of the victim has not been revealed.
So far it's not clear how the body got there or the official cause of death.
