A third man, 26-year-old Joseph Lucas, 26, who allegedly drove Everson and Alonzo to the gas station where Perry was shot and killed, was arraigned Saturday on charges of first-degree murder and felony firearm. He was remanded to the Wayne County Jail.

Perry was shot and killed around 12:25 a.m. Jan. 5 when he arrived at a gas station in the 15000 block of Gratiot. As Perry was pumping gas, he was allegedly approached by Alonzo and the two had an argument. Everson allegedly pulled out a handgun and both he and Alonzo allegedly chased Perry as he tried to run away from his attackers.

Everson allegedly fired several shots that struck Perry in the head, killing him as he fled a short distance from the station. The horrifying incident is partly captured on videotape.
