Delta Township, MI – A 26-year-old Michigan man who was firing a gun on a busy street was shot and killed by another man with a concealed pistol license.

A 22-year-old man who was driving his car at about 8:25 a.m. on June 15 stopped in the eastbound lane of Saginaw Highway, according to the Lansing State Journal.

The 26-year-old man then walked over to the car and pointed his gun at the 22-year-old man.

That’s when the 22-year-old man fired from his vehicle and hit the 26-year-old man, the Lansing State Journal reported.
