WARREN, Mich. – On Friday, a 28-year-old Warren man died after being shot five times in the head and neck by a 27-year-old man, police say.

The suspect was arrested in Detroit and taken into police custody on Saturday, according to Warren Police Commissioner, William Dwyer.

Officers responded to the shooting around 3:30 p.m. Friday at the Warren Manor Apartments.
