SOUTHFIELD — Three men have been charged in connection with an armed robbery that happened in the parking lot of a TGI Friday’s in Southfield Dec. 28.

Jordan Tyrie Brown and Kevon B. Ingram, both 19 and from Lima, Ohio, and Paris Oliver McGhee, a 21-year-old from Detroit, are accused of shooting a 25-year-old man in the leg outside the restaurant.

According to Lt. Nick Loussia of the Southfield Police Department, there were initially four suspects, though one was not charged during the arraignment Dec. 29 in 46th District Court before Judge Donna M. Posey.

Brown was arraigned on charges of armed robbery, possession of a firearm and carrying a concealed weapon. He is held on a $1 million cash or surety bond.

Ingram was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon and has a $10,000 cash or surety bond. McGhee, who faces an armed robbery charge, is being held on a $250,000 cash or surety bond.

Authorities responded to the restaurant Friday evening, after a report of a shooting near the restaurant, located at Evergreen and 10 Mile roads. The suspects reportedly fled in a vehicle, but police caught up with them.

“Our officers stopped a car that matched the description of the suspect vehicle. (Four) subjects were taken into custody, items stolen from the victim were recovered,” Loussia explained via email the night of the incident.

The victim was taken to the hospital and was in stable condition, Loussia added. The man has since been released.

Police closed a portion of the Lodge freeway Friday night to look for the weapon, possibly tossed out the window by suspects. The freeway reopened by 8 p.m., according to Loussia.

According to administrators at 46th District Court, there is no attorney information on file for the three suspects, and their next court date is set for Jan. 9.
