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.

    A jury shown the videotaped torture of a kidnapping victim has convicted the two men who held a man captive for 17 hours at a Buffalo home because they thought he was a police informant. Authorities say the two men kidnapped a 25-year-old crack addict they accused of being a snitch. Video from Dawson's cellphone shows a gun being shoved into the victim's mouth and the victim being forced to lick his own blood off the boot of a captor.

    A technical glitch in a red light camera operating system means that some 17,000 motorists in New Jersey will not have to pay a fine for running red lights. Computer problems between May 28 and June 30 resulted in motorists not receiving notices of violations. New Jersey law requires that if a ticket hasn't been served within 90 days, it must be dismissed.
