A man allegedly opened fire on a Detroit mother and her family members on Saturday, killing her after she refused to give the man her number.
Twenty-seven year old Mary “Unique” Spears was attending a family event following the funeral of a relative when a stranger reportedly approached her inside the venue, asking for her name and phone number.
“I have a man, I can’t talk to you,” she told the stranger, according to Spears’ aunt.
Spears continued to fend off advances until around 2 a.m., when the family began to leave the event. The stranger then allegedly approached the woman one final time, and soon a scuffle broke out between the man and Spears’ fiancée.
Suddenly the stranger opened fire, shooting Spears once as she ran away and then twice in the head, WJBK reported.
The man then began to fire at other members of the family, injuring five of them. WJBK reported that four were subsequently hospitalized.
Detroit police arrested the man after he allegedly tried to flee the scene.
