Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Kyon Lamar Smith, 27 (DOB: 08/28/1991) of Inkster, in connection with the armed robbery of a 37-year-old Romulus woman and a 39-year-old Romulus man, which escalated to the non-fatal shooting of the 37-year-old woman.

On November 24, 2018 at approximately 2:00 p.m., Romulus police officers responded to a dispatch about a woman with a gunshot wound to her face in the 6800 block of Waynecourse Street in Romulus.
