Grandfather shot mowing lawn in Detroit

(WXYZ) - Family members are understandably devastated after their loved one, a 45-year-old man, was shot and killed while mowing the lawn late Thursday.

We're told he was shot and killed while his young grandson rode a bike nearby. One neighbor heard the shots, saw an SUV speed away and then ran down to see what had happened.

Others in this tight-knit and well-kept neighborhood find it so hard to believe there had been a shooting and that a man they've known for years was the victim.  

Investigators spent hours at the scene while the man's wife and other relatives and the little grandson stood nearby. 

Police and the family want to know who did this and why.
