A 41-year-old Detroit man was charged Tuesday for the fatal shooting of another man at the Hip Hop Shop on Detroit’s northwest side Oct.10.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy charged Keith B. Hudson with the homicide of Marcel Dubose. Hudson reportedly said the shooting was in self-defense, but authorities disagree and have charged him with premeditated murder.

The shooting took place around 9:20 p.m. near the Hip Hop Shop on West Seven Mile near Montrose. The business is owned by Hudson, according to the prosecutor.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner has ruled the death of 26-year-old Dubose a homicide. He suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

Hudson was charged Monday with first-degree premeditated murder, manslaughter and felony firearm. He was remanded to the Wayne County Jail on Tuesday and is scheduled for a probable cause conference 8:30 a.m. Oct. 25. He also faces a preliminary examination 1:30 p.m. Oct. 31 on the charges.

Both hearings are scheduled before 36th District Court Judge Deborah Lewis Langston.

The details of the fatal shooting will be revealed during the preliminary examination hearing, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.
