HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (WJBK) -

Police say a 23-year-old man was shot and killed during a gun fight on the streets of Hamtramck.

Family members tell FOX 2's Al Allen that Quentus Parham was visiting family and friends Monday night when some sort of argument broke out. Police say a gun battle ensued after a brief chase in the area of Commor and Grand Haven Streets, just west of I-75.

Allen says Parham was shot several times. Dozens of shell casings were found in the streets.

Family says Parham used to live in the area, but recently moved away. "He had to be at the wrong place at the wrong time," said Darcel Rush, the victim's cousin. They say he leaves behind a five-year-old daughter.

Michigan State Police are handling the investigation. No arrests have been made, but Allen reports police are looking for at least two suspects.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
