Friends and family members of Selena Buston are heartbroken as they struggle to come to grips with the death of the 25-year-old mother of five, gunned down on the night of Oct. 2 in front of her two youngest children.

According to a story, as well as social media accounts, the incident took place in River Rouge. However, Sgt. Jerome Copeland of the River Rouge Police Department said it actually occurred in Ecorse, with his department assisting. He said he could not provide any details of the crime, other than to confirm that it occurred.

Ecorse police did not return repeated requests for comment.

An acquaintance of the family told The News-Herald that he also believed the shooting occurred in River Rouge, and the victim lived in Taylor.

Family members said the victim was sitting in her truck when an unknown assailant attacked her.

Grieving family members honored Buston the following night through a prayer vigil held near the site where she was killed. They released pink and purple balloons, symbolizing her favorite colors.

Alicia Salinas, who identified herself as the victim’s aunt, set up a GoFundMe account to help pay for funeral costs.

“My niece, Selena, just turned 25,” Salinas stated on the GoFundMe page. “She has five beautiful babies. Unfortunately tonight 10-2/20 as she sat in her truck with her two younger babies, her truck got shot up in River Rouge. Now, her babies have to grow up without their mom.”

Anyone with information about the case is asked to contact Ecorse police at 313-381-0900.
