IMAGE: Shooting at Mason and Throop

A Saginaw man is dead after being shot in broad daylight. 

It happened about 1 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 12 at Mason and Throop on the city's west side. 

Sgt. Oscar Lopez said when officers arrived on the 700 block of N. Mason they found a Deviontae Marcione-Jerome Banks, a 26-year-old man from Saginaw, with multiple gunshot wounds. 

Banks was taken to Covenant Hospital by ambulance where he was pronounced dead.

“I was coming out of the house and I heard ‘Pop, pop, pop’ and I’m like…? And I thought it was firecrackers,” Maurice Gray said.

Gray is beside himself after witnessing yet another violent act in his Saginaw neighborhood.

“Come to find out, I seen the dude running up the street. I ran to the corner and he was running up the street and he passed out in his yard,” Gray said.

This is the 13th homicide in the city of Saginaw this year. Neighbors are appalled, especially because it happened in broad daylight. 

"It's crazy. You people really have the courage to come around and kill someone in broad daylight? What's wrong with ya'll? That's wild," Anthony Gary said. 

Other are saying they're used to violence in the area. They continue to be disappointed and frightened by it. 

"There's quite a lot of shootings that go on right around this area. I try to stay out of that circle and all I can do is pray for the city and hope it gets better," Katrell Warren said. 

Authorities haven't released suspect information at this time. 

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call Det. Accardo at 989-759-1419 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-422-JAIL.
