WARREN — An investigation remained ongoing and charges were believed to be forthcoming at press time after an alleged robbery and shooting on May 10 wounded a 45-year-old Warren man at the Red Roof Inn on Dequindre, just north of the I-696 service drive.

Detective Sgt. Stephen Mills of the Warren Police Department said the victim arrived at the hotel where he met with a 23-year-old suspect. The pair reportedly went into a room where another suspect was waiting with a handgun. The victim reportedly told police the second suspect demanded money.

“They started fighting. During the course of the fight, the suspect shot him a couple times,” Mills said.

The victim reportedly suffered gunshot wounds to his hand and was transported to the nearby St. John Macomb-Oakland Hospital campus in Madison Heights, where he was listed in temporary serious condition. He was reportedly treated and released. 

Police later arrested the 23-year-old suspect at the Knight’s Inn on the west side of Dequindre.

Mills said detectives and officers assigned to the Warren Police Department’s Special Operations Unit later took the alleged shooter and a driver into custody.

All three suspects remained held in the Warren jail at press time and were expected to be arraigned in the 37th District Court on May 13, after press time. The names of the suspects were not released pending their formal arraignment
