DETROIT – No charges will be filed in a deadly road rage shooting that happened Friday night at an intersection just off of 8 Mile Road near Kelly Road in Eastpointe.

Ty Hale, 18, died from his injuries. A 60-year-old man claimed self-defense in the shooting.

The family is demanding justice in the form of charges.

Balloons that read “Justice for Ty” were placed at the intersection where the fatal confrontation occurred, and from the looks of it, that will not happen, which has to be devastating for everyone who loved him.

The 60-year-old man, who says he shot 18-year-old Ty Hale in self-defense, will not face any charges at all.

The tale end of what police describe as a road rage incident was partly recorded on a doorbell camera picked up the fatal shot.

Moments earlier, you can see Hale, a father of two, ride his minibike up to the passenger side of the Dodge Ram at the intersection of David and Stricker avenues.

Investigators say the trouble initially started on 8 Mile Road. Bill Amadeo, the attorney representing Hale’s family, says the young man was unarmed.

Local 4 reached out to the Hale family through attorney Amadeo Tuesday.

It appears as though they still don’t have the words to describe the tragic loss of life and now the lack of charges in the case.
