A young woman who rejected the advances of a man inside of a social hall in Detroit became a victim of his wrath when he reportedly shot her dead Saturday night.

Mary Spears, 27, was reportedly attending an event at a hall in East Detroit when a 38-year-old man approached her and tried to engage her in conversation, reports WDIV Detroit. Witnesses say the woman wasn’t interested in him and that he had to be escorted out of the hall by a security guard.

The disgruntled man then allegedly got into a fight with a man outside of the club, pulled out a gun and opened fire on the crowd.

The suspect allegedly found Spears and fatally shot her in the head.
