DETROIT (AP) -- A 44-year-old Detroit man celebrating July Fourth has been killed after fireworks he was lighting struck him in the chest and exploded.
WXYZ-TV and WDIV-TV report Saturday that instead of shooting toward the sky, the fireworks shot out horizontally about 10:30 p.m. Friday on the city's west side.
A neighbor tells WWJ-AM that the man was holding the fireworks when it went off.
He was pronounced dead at the scene.
