Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Antoinette Denise Moore, 51, (DOB: 08/24/1970), of Detroit, in connection with the fatal shooting of Willie Grant Jr., 47, also of Detroit. The defendant and the victim were residing together at the time of the incident.
On June 24, 2022, at approximately 8:03 p.m., Detroit police officers were dispatched to a residence in the 16020 block of Bringard Street in Detroit for a reported shooting.

Medics arrived on scene and transported the victim to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.
It is alleged that a verbal altercation between the defendant and the victim escalated, and Defendant Moore produced and fired a shotgun, fatally wounding Mr. Grant. Investigation by the Detroit Police Department led to the arrest of the defendant later the same day.
