WARREN — The suspect in the city’s second fatal shooting over a two-week span surrendered to police and will now face second-degree murder, narcotics possession and felony weapons charges.

Capt. Robert Ahrens, of the Warren Police Department, confirmed that Reinaldo Richard Jamison, 24, of Warren, turned himself in Aug. 30. Jamison was named earlier as a person of interest in the Aug. 28 shooting death of 32-year-old Andre Wilson Fort, of Detroit. Fort was found dead by his girlfriend inside Jamison’s home in the 23500 block of Joseph Street, near Stephens Road and Warner Avenue.

Detective Sgt. Paul Houtos said Warren patrol officers were dispatched to the address to investigate a report of shots fired and one person down.

“He was found inside the residence by the front door,” Houtos said. “No one else was at the house. His girlfriend was nearby. She said she brought Fort to the house to meet with, ultimately, the suspect. They’re known to each other. Fort told his girlfriend to leave. She returned 20 minutes later. When no one answered the door, she pushed the door open and found him dead on the floor.”

Jamison was last seen leaving in his vehicle, a Mercury Sable.

Warren detectives were ultimately able to contact Jamison and arrange for his surrender.

“It’s only our second homicide of the year, and yet another one that Warren PD worked very hard and solved within a couple days,” Houtos said.

Jamison was arraigned by Judge Matthew Sabaugh in the 37th District Court Aug. 31. He told the court that he would retain his own attorney and was ordered held in the Macomb County Jail without bond ahead of a probable cause conference before Judge Michael Chupa at 8:45 a.m. Sept. 18. No defense attorney was listed in court records as of Sept. 5.
