Justice Elusive for 4 Killed in Detroit Home

DETROIT (AP) -- Family members of four young people killed in a Detroit home a year ago are holding out hope that someone will be held responsible.

The victims were shot in the head execution-style at a modest home on the city's east side on Dec. 4, 2012.

The deaths represent 1 percent of the 386 criminal homicides in Detroit last year. There have been another 300-plus killings so far this year.

The staggering figures are staring in the face of an already undermanned police force working in a city seeking federal bankruptcy protection.

It's of little consolation to the bereaved.

Juneita Davis' brother, Dyrelle, was one of the victims of the Tacoma Street killings.

She says "someone is walking out there on the street with no consequences."
