DETROIT (AP) - Police say a 24-year-old man arrested following a fatal shooting during a Cinco de Mayo parade in Detroit has been released as the investigation continues.

The Detroit Free Press and The Detroit News report the man, who was taken into custody Sunday following the death of 19-year-old Andres DeJesus, was freed this week.

Prosecutors said Wednesday they requested more information from police. Detroit police Sgt. Michael Woody said the investigation is ongoing.

The medical examiner’s office said that DeJesus, who was pronounced dead at a hospital following the Sunday afternoon shooting, had a gunshot wound to the chest.

The annual parade on the city’s southwest side, which had just kicked off, was shut down after the shooting. Police also stepped up patrols in the area in the days afterward.
