Prosecutor Kym L. Worthy has charged Marcus Perkins, 24 (DOB: 5/12/1990), and Aaron Matthews, 24 (DOB: 4/20/1990), both of Detroit, in connection with a multiple shooting that took place in the 9800 block of Chalmers. On March 1, 2015 at approximately 4:14 a.m., it is alleged that Perkins and Matthews got into a dispute with people attending a party at the Chalmers Community Center and that Perkins and Matthews fired multiple shots into a group of the partygoers, striking several of them. It is further alleged that Matthews attempted to rob one person during this incident. Further, it is alleged that after leaving the Community Center, Matthews attempted to carjack the vehicle of a person at the Fountain of Truth Church and that during the attempted carjacking, he shot the driver of the vehicle as she drove away.
Perkins is charged with four counts of Assault with Intent to Commit Murder, one count of Felon in Possession of a Firearm, and one count of Felony Firearm. Matthews is charged with two counts of Assault with Intent to Commit Murder, one count of Robbery, one count Attempted Carjacking, one count Felon in Possession of a Firearm, and one count of Felony Firearm.
