Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged a juvenile male, age 16, (DOB: 06/18/2005), in connection with the non-fatal shootings of a 14-year-old male and two 15-year-old males, all of Detroit. The juvenile respondent is not being charged as an adult defendant; he has been adult designated. This means that upon conviction an adult designation allows the judge to have the option of sentencing the respondent as a juvenile, or as an adult, or to fashion a blended juvenile sentence with the option of imposing an adult sentence if the juvenile is not rehabilitated.

On August 8, 2021, at approximately 6:00 p.m., the victims were standing at a football game at a park near the intersection of West Boston Boulevard and Otsego Street in Detroit when they heard gunshots. It is alleged that the juvenile respondent fired a handgun into the crowd, non-fatally wounding the three victims.

The juvenile respondent has been charged with three counts of Assault with Intent to Murder and three counts of Felony Firearm. * His Preliminary Hearing was held on August 14, 2021 at the Lincoln Hall of Justice. Referee Daniel McGuire set a $50,000/10% bond. The next court date is August 16, 2021 at 10:30 a.m. before Judge Edward J. Joseph.

*The charges are allegations and defendants are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
