Bicyclist shot after colliding with pickup truck in Taylor; later dies during surgery [Click On Detroit]

TAYLOR, Mich. -
Taylor bike crash shooting 2A bicyclist who was shot after being involved in a traffic accident with a pickup driver in Taylor has died.
Taylor police say the bicyclist died during surgery after the Wednesday night incident with a 46-year-old driver. Police have identified the 42-year-old man as Henry Enoch, of Taylor. The pickup driver, who police say is the suspected shooter, was arrested but released Thursday.
Police said the two began arguing after the bicyclist disregarded a "Do Not Cross" signal at Telegraph and Northline roads, causing the driver to hit him. Witnesses said the bicyclist got up and confronted the driver.
"The pedestrian light was red. He wasn't supposed to be crossing and ran into the side of the truck," said witness Michelle Noffsinger. "He jumped up, he got up, and he ran around the front of the truck to the driver's side and he just started pounding on this guy. He hit him ... maybe seven times or so, and then the driver shot him and he fell to the ground. It was just really crazy."
