DETROIT (WJBK) -

A 12-year-old is killed after a gunman drives by and shoots along the front porch.

Sunsearae Hall says her son, Kenis Green Jr., was sitting outside their house on Rutherford with other family members. They were all celebrating an uncle's birthday. Hall say a burgundy van down the street, and recognized it as a neighbor's. She also says, she knew that neighbor was trouble, and called for her boyfriend, Gregory Owens.

Owens rushed outside and told the kids to come in, but at that moment, the driver began spraying bullets along the front porch. Owens was hit in the stomach, and 12-year-old Green was hit in the head and killed. Other family members barely made it inside.

Police have arrested Alvin Conwell, a neighbor of the victims. The family says Conwell recently accused Owens of hitting on his girlfriend. Conwell lives across the street with that girlfriend.

Conwell has not been charged yet. Owens is recovering in the hospital, listed in serious condition.

A vigil is scheduled for this Friday, September 6, at Stoepel Park beginning at 5PM.
