ROSEVILLE — A 17-year-old Macomb Township resident remained in critical condition Sept. 29 after he suffered a gunshot wound inside a Roseville home Sept. 26.

The incident occurred at approximately 8:26 p.m. in the 17000 block of Ivanhoe Street, which is in the general area of Martin Road and Gratiot Avenue. According to Roseville police, seven people were inside the home when there was what appeared to be an accidental discharge from a firearm. The 17-year-old was shot in the head, police said.

“It appears the shooting was accidental by all of the people present, who are cooperating with investigators. The subject who fired the weapon is in custody and all weapons that were involved have been recovered,” Roseville Deputy Police Chief Mitch Berlin said in a press release.

Berlin added in a subsequent email that the 17-year-old was not one of the subjects who had brought a gun to the party, and that he “was not handling the weapons and by all accounts was an innocent bystander.”

The 17-year-old was transported to a local hospital. A 19-year-old Warren man, Donovan Anthony Harbus, was taken into custody and arraigned in 39th District Court Sept. 29. He was charged with one count of carrying a concealed weapon — a five-year felony — and one count of careless discharge of a firearm causing injury — a two-year misdemeanor.

Harbus’ bond was set at $25,000 cash or surety or 10%. He had not yet retained or been appointed an attorney.
