Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy has charged Michael Joseph Brown, 26 (DOB: 2/2/89) of Detroit, in connection with a non-fatal shooting incident. On July 7, 2015 at 10:30 a.m., in the 14300 block of Cruse in Detroit, Brown ordered the mother of his five-year-old son to turn the child over to him. When she refused, it is alleged that the defendant got in his car and pursued the woman while she was driving in her car with her child and a 24-year-old man. Brown shot at the car, wounding the woman and the 24-year-old man. They both sustained non-fatal gunshot wounds. Brown left the scene and was later apprehended by the police and charged with three counts of Assault with Intent to Murder, three counts of Felonious Assault, and one count of Felony Firearm. He is expected to be arraigned this afternoon at 2:30 p.m. in 36th District Court. Please contact the Detroit Police for a photograph of the defendant.
