On January 23, Thomas was living at Bannum Place, a federal halfway house in Saginaw, Michigan, where he was transferred sometime after his sentence was commuted in November. At approximately 9:40 p.m., two men wearing masks and carrying assault rifles entered the low-security lockup. They began searching the 24 inmates for their target. One gunman reportedly rounded up the group at gunpoint, while the other pulled Thomas, 31, aside. The masked man shot Thomas multiple times, including once in the head.
"One person watched over a group of them while another subject located the victim and executed him," Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser told the Saginaw News. "They were looking for this person."
The shooters left the rest of the onlookers unharmed, and fled the lockup without being captured. Police have yet to name any suspects in the slaying.
