The identities of the two deceased men have not been released.

Police have said that an explosive device found at the scene did not appear to be an explosive device.

A witness told CNN he saw two “big guys” dressed in black and wearing bandannas over their faces enter an alleyway near Greektown and walk toward the mall. The witness saw one of the men shoot a man in the head in the alleyway.

A police spokesperson said there are “strong leads that this guy (Hussain) was to the point of being a ticking time bomb … and just a little crazy.”

“The explosive device this morning has to be taken into consideration,” police said during a press conference Monday afternoon.
