    Detroit — Three people were found fatally shot Monday morning inside a home on the west side that police described as a drug house.

    Sgt. Michael Woody said the victims, all men, found inside the house on the 6500 block of Brace died from their injuries. One was shot while standing in a doorway; two others were shot inside the living room, he said.

    Police responded to a call of shots fired at about 5:22 a.m., Detroit Assistant Chief Steve Dolunt said. By 8:30 a.m., Michigan State Police were on the scene, forming a four-vehicle wall at the intersection of Brace and Whitlock to prevent the crowd and motorists from approaching the crime scene.

    Dolunt said police raided the home once in April and again in May after complaints from neighbors. One arrest was made in the April raid, and that person might be one of the victims of Monday’s shooting, he said. The house had “some” drug paraphernalia inside.

    Police have not yet positively identified any of the victims, Dolunt said, though one “may be a teenager.”

    Angela Owens Brown, 50, said her son De-Angelo Smith Owens, 25, was among the three victims. He was the renter of the home where he was killed, she said.

    Owens Brown said her son “made his money and did what he had to do,”
    but denied that his death was related to drugs or gang activity. She says her son was trying to defuse a neighborhood conflict and got caught in the middle of it.

    The shooting, she said, came hours after her son hosted a “smoke-out” — a gathering where a group of people get together to smoke marijuana — with friends at the house.

    Smith Owens was a father of four — 7-, 3-, 2-, and 1-year-olds — with another baby on the way.

    Owens Brown said Smith Owens will be the seventh child of 12 she will have to bury.


    Roger Collins Jr., 57, was supposed to be taking his wife to cancer treatment Monday morning. Then the call came in at 7 a.m. — his son De-Angelo was dead.

    Smith Owens’ home proved to be “the wrong place at the wrong time,” said Collins, who also has six daughters.

    Collins characterized his son’s death as the result of taking in a friend who’d been involved in a neighborhood beef, then becoming a victim of that conflict.

    Floyd Owens, 52, described his nephew, Smith Owens, as a lover of cars.

    “He loved cars, and he would use his money to buy cars,” Owens said.

    The two of them had just finished work on Owens’ Ford Mustang, which he planned to pass on to his nephew upon his death.

    “Now I have to bury him,” he said.

    As tensions rose on Brace Street on Monday morning, and crowd members began yelling and shoving one another, Bishop Daryl Harris, who works with the police department’s Ceasefire initiative, stepped forward to calm the scene.

    A prayer circle formed around him.

    “For everybody here, please soothe the heart,” Harris prayed. “Don’t let us fall apart right now.”

    It’s a scene, Harris said, that he’s been a part of too many times lately. Monday morning, he was called to Brace Street by the police department.

    “We’ve taken a great loss today,” Harris prayed. “We ask, God, that you accept their souls in your heart and give them peace in this moment.”

    Almost immediately, the crowd was calmed, and there were even some smiles amid the tragedy.

    Tensions remained high throughout the day. A man body-slammed another onto a yard and punched him when he was down.

    On the other side of the street, a woman broke across the police tape and a man soon followed.

    Within minutes, police were pushing the crowd past the scene, which had been extended multiple times already, and a sergeant on the scene was threatening a mass arrest.

    At 1:15 p.m., a family, who'd been watching the scene from the porch all day, brought out a case of water to the street for the crowd.
