*Apparently, the word “No,” is hard for some men to take when it comes to trying to get a woman’s phone number.
Detroit police arrested a man who did not take it well when a woman rejected his advances at an event over the past weekend. Instead of moving along, he shot and killed the woman, and five other people were injured in the process.
27-year-old Mary Spears attended an event at the American Legion Joe Louis Post No. 375 on the east side of Detroit when the 38-year-old suspect allegedly approached her and began talking to her, according to WDIV.
When the man asked for her number, Spears, whose fiancé was also at the event, told him she was already involved with someone, WJBK reports. But the suspect held a deaf ear to her admission, and continued harassing her, family members told the station.
Police said security took the man out of the club through the back door and escorted him to the front. A fight broke out, and the suspect allegedly took out a handgun and began shooting, killing Spears around 2 a.m. Sunday.
Spears is the mother of three boys, ages 8, 4 and 1, according to a fundraising page requesting donations for her burial.
