EASTPOINTE — A father and son are facing charges after Eastpointe police found a man with gunshot wounds.

On March 15, Eastpointe officers responded to a report of shots fired in the 16800 block of Toepfer Drive. When officers arrived, they located a 19-year-old man in a vehicle with apparent gunshot wounds, according to a press release from the department.

The man was transported to a local medical facility and was reported to be in stable condition. Several large-caliber shell casing were located at the scene, the department said in the release.

Police said an investigation revealed that there was a prior altercation in Roseville between the victim and two Roseville residents — Carlos Allan Edwards, 39, and his son, Carlos Toure Leondre Edwards, 18.

“We believe that the shooting was a result of retaliation,” the press release states.

The suspects were located and arrested without incident in Ferndale the next morning. They were arraigned in the 38th District Court in Eastpointe.

Carlos Allan Edwards is facing charges of assault with intent to murder, a felony punishable by any number of years up to life in prison; felony firearm, a two-year felony; carrying a concealed weapon, a five-year felony; possession of a firearm by a felon, a five-year felony; and possession of ammunition by a felon, also a five-year felony. He was given a $1 million cash or surety bond.

Carlos Toure Leondre Edwards is charged with tampering with evidence, a 10-year felony, and accessory after the fact to a felony, a five-year felony. He was given a $400,000 cash or surety bond.

Both defendants had probable cause hearings March 29, during which both waived their preliminary examinations. Both cases were bound over to Macomb County Circuit Court.

Richard W. Glanda, Carlos Allan Edwards’ attorney, declined to comment. Noel Erinjeri, Carlos Toure Leondre Edwards’ attorney, declined to comment as well.

The press release said that the two defendants might face additional charges in Roseville, though at press time none were listed in court records.

Both suspects were being held in the Macomb County Jail.
