Authorities are asking some Roscommon County residents to stay vigilant while police search for three suspects after a deadly shooting.
Just before midnight on Monday, Jan. 14, officers were sent to a home on McKinley Street in Houghton Lake.
Sheriff Ed Stern said witnesses reported three suspects entered the home with their faces covered with long guns and shot a 29-year-old man.
At this time, police believe the victim was shot once, but they are still waiting on the autopsy report.
Responding officers secured the home and tried to give first aid to the victim.
The 29-year-old man was taken to Grayling Munson Hospital but died from his injuries.
The suspects fled on foot. The sheriff said it is possible the suspects had a vehicle waiting for them near the scene.
A K9 unit was called to the track the suspects but later lost the trail.
The victim's identity is not being released while officers notify the family.
Stern said he does not believe the suspects are targeting other people at random.
The sheriff believes there was a motive but could not specify.
"This is a senseless act of violence that has claimed the life of a young man. Officers are expending all available resources investigating this homicide," Stern said.
Residents are asked to stay vigilant and call 911 if they see something suspicious.
Multiple police agencies are assisting in the ongoing investigation.
