Ariel Harris, 29, was shot and killed in Greektown. The 29-year-old man’s life was taken at a party in Detroit early Sunday morning. After the incident, the shooter walked back into the elevator and went about his business – like he hadn’t done anything at all.
Based on security footage, the shooting occurred over an argument. The conflict was centered around holding the elevator door open. Harris had let a group of women enter the elevator first, and the murder suspect appeared to be visibly upset. After this gesture of chivalry, he was shot to death by the angry suspect.
Gayelon Spencer is the suspected shooter. Police have released photos of the man so he could be publicly identified and brought into custody.
Harris was shot in front of the mother of his children and his younger brother. He was taken to Detroit Receiving Hospital, where he later died. Harris’ valuables, such as his Rolex watch and gold chain, also went missing after he got to the hospital.
The victim was known as “Ace” by his friends and loved ones. He left behind a family, including 2 sons that are 9-years-old and 3-years-old.
