Investigators spent a good part of the day trying to figure out what happened behind the Auto Zone on Plymouth Road near the Southfield Freeway. Neighbors tell Fox 2 they heard gunshots around 2am. We're told a customer discovered the body in the alley around 8am and alerted the store manager. Police are releasing few details but will confirm the victim is a black man in his 30's. He was shot multiple times. There were as many as 9 shell casings at the scene. People who appeared to be relatives or close friends of the victims could be seen arriving to try to get information.

Police are looking for tips from the public to help catch the killer. If you have any information on this unsolved crime, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-SPEAKUP or Detroit Police
