I swear that you’d think this came out of GTA: San Andreas, but nope, it happened right here in the D! All I can say is “WTF?”. Seriously, RockStar Games should consider making the next GTA about Detroit.

He lay on a stretcher racked with bullets and screaming for help. Then the masked man returned with a bigger gun to finish the job.
As paramedics frantically stripped 17-year-old Billie Rutledge to find the first series of bullet wounds and try to save his life, the man, now armed with a shotgun, walked up to the driveway on Omira in northern Detroit. He ordered paramedics to step aside.
With that, he leveled the shotgun at Rutledge, as the paramedics fled, and blasted the teen early Saturday morning in the top of the head.
Police are investigating whether Rutledge was killed because he knew too much or was connected to a March 12 slaying in Detroit.
