HARPER WOODS — The Harper Woods Department of Public Safety arrested a suspect March 16 in connection to an alleged attempted murder that took place March 15.

According to police, at approximately 6:30 p.m. March 15 in the 19400 block of Kenosha Street, which is in the general area of Beaconsfield Street and Moross Road, an argument was taking place between 23-year-old Detroit resident Tyren Wesly Williams and an unidentified male subject. Williams allegedly produced a 9 mm handgun during the altercation and fired one shot at the person he was arguing with, who was unarmed.

That person was uninjured, and police said Williams then fled the scene.

The following day, Harper Woods detectives, with the assistance of the Detroit Police Department, executed a search warrant at a residence in the city of Detroit. Police said Williams was located and arrested inside this residence without incident. The 9mm handgun that had been discharged the previous day also was recovered at the scene.

Williams was arraigned March 18 in 32A District Court and was charged with one count of assault with intent to murder and one count of felony firearm. Bond was set by Judge Daniel Palmer at $75,000 cash. A preliminary exam is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 1, in 32A District Court. 

Williams had not retained or been assigned an attorney prior to publication.
