Detroit police are investigating after a 22-year-old man was chased from a gas station on the city's northeast side early this morning and fatally shot. 

Police say the 22-year-old man was filling up his car at a Marathon gas station on Gratiot near Eastburn shortly after midnight when several men came out of the gas station and chased him across the street.

Police sources say the man was then shot multiple times above the neck and died before getting to the hospital. 

A friend has identified the victim as 22-year-old Javon Perry.

"He was a hard working person, so sweet and loving, very family oriented -- and we all loved him dearly. He was never in any trouble, all he cared about was his family," his friend told 7 Action News. 

Perry was a regular customer at the gas station, and lived nearby. 

The suspects were seen driving a gold Buick. They have been identified as Derrick Everson and Kyrell Raymond Alonzo.

No further details have been released at this time.
