Detroit Security Guard Charged in Two Non-Fatal Shootings

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Cedric Lynn Windom, 59, (DOB: 08/09/1960), of Detroit, in connection with the non-fatal shootings of a 44-year-old woman and 46-year-old man that occurred in the parking lot of a Detroit market. Both victims are Detroit residents.

On October 6, 2019, Windom was working as a security guard at a market in the 15600 block of Joy Road in Detroit. At approximately 6:05 p.m., Detroit police officers were dispatched on a call about a gunshot wound reported in the parking lot of the market. Upon arrival, the officers discovered two victims, one adult female and one adult male, suffering from gunshot wounds. Medics arrived and transported the victims to a local hospital for treatment of their injuries.

It is alleged that the defendant had a verbal exchange with the female victim while inside the market. The victim left the store with her groceries. She spoke with her boyfriend and he arrived at the scene. After the discussion with the female victim inside the store, it is alleged that Windom followed both victims outside the store, pointed a firearm at the male victim and fired it, wounding him. It is further alleged that Windom then pointed the firearm at the female victim and fired it, wounding her. The defendant was arrested at the scene.

Windom has been charged with two counts of Assault With Intent to Murder, two counts of Assault With Intent to Do Great Bodily Harm, and four counts of Felony Firearm.* He was arraigned at 2:30 p.m. this afternoon before 36th District Court Magistrate Jeffrey Kleparek. The Probable Cause Conference is scheduled for October 17, 2019 at 8:30 a.m.; the Preliminary Examination is scheduled for October 24, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. Both hearings are before Judge Kenyetta Stanford Jones in 36th District Court. The defendant received a $500,000 cash/surety bond. Please request a photo of the defendant from the Detroit Police Department.
