SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

WNEM TV5 has learned a man was fatally shot inside All-Star Liquor, located at Glenwood and Tausend in Saginaw.

The shooting happened sometime around 1 p.m. and a TV5 crew at the scene said a half-dozen police cars converged on the location. The market is a liquor and grocery store.

Relatives tell TV5 a 19-year-old man named Darius Johnson was gunned down. TV5 spoke with the man's aunt, who says another nephew of hers was shot and killed two years ago.

Shortly after the shooting, the scene became chaotic with a lot of yelling between members of the public. Investigators were seen taking out video surveillance equipment from the store.

Authorities were also interviewing witnesses at the scene. 

Community members say senseless violence is the disappointment they live with, but Wednesday's midday shooting is putting this community more on edge.

"You've got to be very cautious with what you do and where you go," said Saginaw resident Albert Hudson.

Hudson said that's the sad reality of living in Saginaw and he believes it's not only teenagers and young adults who are the victims, but the entire community.

"The store was open for business. Obviously, it's broad daylight, hopefully someone will come forward and say something," said Saginaw police Sgt. Brent VanderHaar.

Police are looking for the killer. Amy Spiller is looking for this violence to stop.

"Now they're shooting, and killing, and robbing, it's really sad," said Spiller.

She knew Wednesday's victim.

"They don't think anything. I don't think they care anymore. The kids these days. If it's not their way, it's no way, that's how I look at it," said Spiller.

Johnson's funeral will be the fourth she's attended just this year. All of the deceased were victims to violence. Her grandson, Tim Lard Jr., was shot and killed earlier this week. His funeral is next Thursday.

"I'm really disappointed from where we were to what we've become," said Spiller.

Disappointment is a word heard much too often on the streets of Saginaw, and until the senseless shootings stop, the word won't be lost.

"Kids need someone over them directing them. And once you don't have the direction, or feel that direction, we are lost," said Hudson.
