Michigan State Police say two masked gunmen with assault-style rifles entered a federal halfway house with a specific goal: the "execution" of Demarlon C. Thomas one 79 people who had their sentences commuted by President Barack Obama on Nov. 22, 2016
Thomas, a former member of Saginaw's Sunny Side Gang had his 19-years sentence commuted, was slain by one of the gunmen around 9:40 p.m. on January 23, at Bannum Place, a federal halfway house, said Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser.
Thomas, 31, was shot in the head and numerous other times by one of the gunmen as his partner corralled at gunpoint some of the other 23 people in the house, Kaiser said.
"One person watched over a group of them while another subject located the victim and executed him," Kaiser said. "They were looking for this person."
No one else was injured, and it's unknown at this time what security measures the halfway house had in place, Kaiser said. No suspects are in custody.
