Eran Tryon, R.I.P.

Violence on the East Side claims another life, this time just around the corner from Angelo's Coney Island.

Khalil AlHajal of The Flint Journal reports:
Friends and family of Eran Tryon gathered for a vigil Monday at Arlington Avenue and Broadway Boulevard, where the 32-year-old was killed in a triple shooting Sunday night.

The tall, outgoing father of three was known as a skilled paint technician who worked at Lowe's in Burton.

"He was a top-notch guy," said Tryon's brother Eric Ashby. "He'll definitely be missed."

Tryon was killed in a drive-by shooting Sunday that also injured an 18-year-old woman and left an 8-year-old boy in critical condition.

Ashby said his little brother was supposed to be the best man in his wedding next week.

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
