Winning lottery ticket may have been Detroit murder motive

In Chicago three years ago a North Side man was murdered after winning $1 million in an Illinois Lottery scratch-off game.

Life is much cheaper in the Motor City.

From Fox Detroit:
A man was shot to death Tuesday and police think he may have been targeted because he had won some money.

People who know the victim said that he had recently won $5,000 on a scratch-off lottery ticket and made the mistake of making it public.

Police are considering the possibility the man was robbed. Neighbors found him slumped over in his SUV on Euclid and Beaubien around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon.
The deceased was shot in the head.
