Three men are being sought in the shooting death of a security guard who intervened during a carjacking outside a CVS pharmacy in northwest Detroit.
Police say Thursday that 24-year-old Courtney Meeks was shot once in the neck about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday as he ran toward two men who were driving away in the stolen car. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Meeks was alerted to the carjacking by a customer who saw two men with guns ordering another woman and a child from her car in the parking lot.
The car was found a short distance away.
Police say the two men and a third man may have been involved in an earlier carjacking attempt a block from the CVS. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
