WARREN — An investigation remained ongoing April 9, three days after a 25-year-old Warren man was shot during an argument at an apartment complex near Hayes and Groesbeck.

Warren Police Detective Sgt. Stephen Mills said the victim was shot through the arm during a confrontation at the Regency Club Apartments at about 1:30 p.m. April 6 during a confrontation over the alleged malicious destruction of property (MDOP) at another address in Warren.

“Our victim goes over and possibly MDOPs his ex-girlfriend’s house on Sunday,” Mills said. “Someone close to her comes over to the victim’s house to confront him about it.”

Detective Kevin Dailey, the officer in charge of the case, said a semi-automatic handgun was used and that the victim was treated and released from the hospital. He said the suspect, a 40-year-old Detroit resident, had not been charged as of April 9 and that the investigation continued.

“It’s still an ongoing investigation. We’re executing search warrants and subpoenas,” Dailey said.  “We’re still solidifying our case before we submit it to the prosecutor’s office for final disposition.”

The bullet from the .40-caliber handgun reportedly passed cleanly through the flesh of the victim’s arm.
