A 22-year-old man was shot and killed on Tuesday after being shot in the head.
The incident occurred around 3 p.m. on the 1100 block of Essling street.
When Saginaw Police arrived, they found Brian Antonio Kelly suffering from a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead on the sceen.
At this time, authorities have identified his death as a homicide. No suspect information has been released but Saginaw Major Crimes Unit is still investigating the shooting and have interviewed several witnesses.
Neighbors we spoke with say they want the violence to end.
"In the last two years it's been tragedy over this way, don't even know what for," says resident Jackie Sangster.
This marks the seventeenth homicide in Saginaw this year and according to NBC 25's records the third in this neighborhood.
Nearby residents say years ago, the neighborhood was much different.
"We could go up and down the street and play. Wasn't no killing, shooting, no drive by's, and all of that," says Sangster.
The recent deaths of six-year-old Lay'la Jones ad 21-year-old Bobby Bailey both occurred in nearby homes.
"This generation coming up aint going to be no generation this is just a fallen generation right now."
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Saginaw Police Department at 989-759-1248 or CRIMESTOPPERS.
