Police are investigating the Detroit shooting death of the brother-in-law of Greater Grace Temple’s Bishop Charles Ellis III Monday afternoon.

“We have to bring an end to gun violence and violence period,” Ellis said today. “Really we are just disheartened. And hopefully we will understand why this happened and who’s responsible. And hopefully they’ll be brought to justice.”

Dwayne Green, 48, the brother of Ellis’ wife, Crisette Ellis, was shot twice in the head, said Ellis.

Two cousins had planned to visit Green Monday at the two-flat home in the 6600 block of Barlum, near Livernois and West Warren. Instead, he was found bleeding from a head wound at 4:10 p.m., Detroit Police Sgt. Michael Woody said. Police are investigating the case as a homicide.
