DETROIT, MI – The Superland Market located at 17021 Schoolcraft Road in Detroit is once again in the news. It was the scene of a carjacking that took the life of a 20 year old Detroit man Monday night on the city’s west side.
Detroit Police have three persons of interest in custody and are still searching for a possible third.
Detroit police report the two men lured the 20 year old out of the store around 8:30 p.m. One of the two carjackers had a gun. The two robbers demanded the victims Pontiac G6. At that time a fight broke out between the carjackers and the victim. The armed suspect, believed to be in his teens, fired shots, striking the 20-year-old in the chest.
The victim who was a military reservist was taken to Sinai-Grace Hospital, where he was pronounced dead. His name was Dontae Norris.
The man’s car was recovered later on the west side and is being processed for evidence.
In March of 2014 the Superland Market was dubbed as the most filthy grocery market in the city. The store’s owner, Steven Najor, has been working in recent months since the surprise inspection to get the establishment cleaned up.
Anyone with information that can lead to an arrest in this crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
