Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy is charging juvenile respondent Tommie Lee Grady*, 14, of Detroit, with Assault with Intent to Murder, Felonious Assault, Felony Firearm and Minor in Possession of a Firearm. Grady will be adult designated and he will be tried in the juvenile court system. Upon conviction, the judge will determine if Grady will be sentenced as a juvenile, or as an adult, or if there will be a blended juvenile and adult sentence.
On June 11, 2015 at approximately 8:00 p.m. at his parent's home located in the 15400 block of Wisconsin, it is alleged that the teen took a gun and shot his mother and pointed the gun at his brother before fleeing the location on foot. Grady's mother was taken to a local hospital and treated for several gunshot wounds. She has since been released. On June 12, 2015, he was arrested by the police after he was observed walking in the area of Keeler and Meyers.
The preliminary hearing will be held on June 18, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. in the Juvenile Detention Center located at 1325 St. Antoine Street in Detroit.
*The respondent was incorrectly identified as Tommie Lee Pettway in earlier reports.
