(08/22/13) - Police are asking for help from the public in an overnight murder
in Saginaw - the second in two days.
Fifty-six-year-old Nathaniel Ware was shot in a car on the city's east side just after midnight.
The investigation started when police were called to the intersection of 15th and Remington.
Ware had been shot several times. He died later at St Mary's.
Police are now interviewing witnesses. They are still trying to figure out what led up to the shooting.
We talked to neighbors who live nearby. One woman says she heard the shots. Those neighbors tell us they're fed up with the ongoing violence in their community.
"I heard the two pops and I looked out the door and I seen the police and I came to the corner and I seen the truck parked half way on the curb," said Mikko Johnson. "Everybody need to quit killing everybody. Everybody need to go to church, that's what they need, church. They need the Lord because they going crazy. You shouldn't have to kill nobody or shoot at nobody, that's crazy."
Saginaw and Michigan State Police are working together, but they have few leads and they're asking for witnesses to come forward.
"We're working together as well and as hard as we can in order to help solve these investigations, but it's becoming highly frustrating because it seems like it's continuing and it seems like it's for no apparent reason, so we just want the community to come together to help us help them with bringing forth information," said Reggie Williams, of the Saginaw Police Dept.
This is the second murder in about 48 hours on Saginaw's south side.
Sixteen-year-old Stone Roberson died Tuesday morning on Logan Lane, also from gunshot wounds.
If you have any information on either shooting, contact Saginaw or Michigan State Police.
