“Two masked gunmen brandishing assault-style weapons sought out and killed Thomas, a former member of Saginaw’s Sunny Side Gang, at that halfway house Monday night, reports MLive. “They were looking for this person,” a Michigan State Police officer says, describing the shooting as execution-style.
One gunman shot Thomas numerous times, while the other held 23 others at gunpoint; ultimately, no one else was injured. “I think it was connected one way or another to the gang he was from or a rival gang,” the officer tells Michigan Radio.”
What did this guy do to warrant this kind of risk and attention? Did he testify against other gang members?
