Suspect Arrested For Killing a Man With Bad Elevator Etiquette in Detroit
Police have arrested a suspect who is accused of killing a man for not holding an elevator door in Detroit's Greektown district.
Details of the Incident
Police say the dispute began when a man refused to hold an elevator for another individual in the early morning hours of November 27. The situation quickly escalated leaving the 29-year-old victim dead from a gunshot wound. The incident occurred at 400 Monroe Street near Brush Street in Detroit, according to Detroit TV station WJBK-TV.

An arrest was made today (12/6) in Ohio. Police say the suspect will be extradited to Michigan where he will face charges.
Detroit Police Chief James White called the shooting "absolutely ridiculous" at a press conference and said it was yet "another example of people failing to use problem-solving skills resolve conflict without using a weapon."
"Someone wouldn't hold an elevator door and was ultimately shot," the chief said as he expressed his frustration over the crime.
