Marcus Houston, R.I.P.

"Police on Thursday night [Nov. 13] were investigating the slaying of a man shot numerous times outside a party store on the city's north side," reports Bryn Mickle of The Flint Journal.

"A man who police believe to be in his late teens or early 20s was found shot in the upper body about 6 p.m. near the front door of a party store at Sherman Avenue and Harvard Street.

"Police found multiple shell casings nearby from two different types of guns."

Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. 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
