Melvin Nappier, a rapper, entrepreneur and former write-in candidate for mayor, was murdered on May 15th. Bryn Mickle of The Flint Journal reports:
"Nappier was just a few blocks from his home last Thursday afternoon when he was gunned down.
"Witnesses told police they saw Nappier and another man get into a fistfight on a front stoop of a house on Woodhall Drive before Nappier took off running.
"Nappier made it to a grassy area near Lakeforest and Berger drives where he was shot several times, including in the head."

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
