A funeral service for slain Farmington Hills party store owner Duraid Lossia, known to the community as "Dave", will be held Dec. 31, 9 a.m., at Mother of God Church, 25585 Berg Rd. in Southfield. 

The family will receive visitors Monday at Southfield Funeral Home, 18338 W. 12 Mile Rd. in Southfield. 

Lossia was found shot to death inside Tom's Party Store on Inkster Road north of Eight Mile early Saturday afternoon. Farmington Hills Police are still searching for a suspect who was seen leaving the store just before Lossia's body was discovered by a customer. 

According to the Detroit Free Press, dozens of people turned out for a candlelight vigil held Sunday evening in front of the store. 

“Anyone who knew him would not want to hurt him,” Redford Township resident Eric Johnston told the newspaper. “I’ve never heard one person say anything bad about him.”

Police are looking for a suspect described as a black male, 6-feet tall, 180 pounds, wearing a dark green jacket and winter hat. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the Farmington Hills Police command desk, 248-871-2610.

Party store owners have a dangerous occupation. Every death is a great misfortune, so we should make sure that those who do not value life have a short career. We must use available surveillance technology to identify perpetrators. New laws to mandate installation of such technology may be necessary, the cost of implementation an unfortunate necessity.
