DETROIT (WJBK) - Detroit police has increased its presence in southwest Detroit after a 19-year-old was killed during a Cinco de Mayo parade Sunday.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the suspected gunman is not believed to be a gang member but that DeJesus likely has ties to a particular gang, Latin Counts.

Sources say the suspect has a concealed pistol license and told investigators he was acting in self defense. Prosecutors are still reviewing the warrant to determine if the suspect will face charges.
