A Detroit Transit center officer has been charged with fatally shooting a man during a scuffle in May outside a gas station.
Robert Tyus, 52, is facing charges of manslaughter and felony firearm for the death of 26-year-old Jordan West-Morson.
It's alleged that on the evening of May 1, West-Morson was at the gas station on East 8 Mile Road selling CDs when he got into a verbal argument with Tyus, who identified himself as a Detroit transit officer.
The argument escalated into a fist fight and at some point Tyus drew a gun, firing one shot at West-Morson.
Tyus is expected to be arraigned on Wednesday.
