Fatal shooting at Clinton Township apartment complex

CLINTON TOWNSHIP (WXYZ) - Clinton Township Police say a 23-year-old man was fatally shot in the hallway of the Clemens Court Apartments.

They say the victim was from Highland Park, about fifteen miles south of where the shooting happened just before nine o'clock this morning.

Some of the hallway gun fire cut through a wall and grazed a woman inside of her apartment, police say. There is no word on her condition or where she was wounded.

One witness who did not want to be identified told 7 Action News that there were children waiting for a school bus in the complex parking lot at the time the victim was seen running from the building where the shooting took place.

She said the man was on the ground at the feet of a Clinton Township Police officer screaming, "Help me. I can't breath."

Officers confirmed that the victim was talking when they arrived, but died a short time later. The police won't say if what the man said will be able to help them in their search for the person responsible for the shooting or the reason for the shooting.
