2 men face charges in Christmas weekend homicide
Detroit – Two men face charges in a Detroit man's Christmas weekend shooting death with one of the men already in police custody.
Court records show that Brian Sherrod, 22, and Romante Adams, 28, face identical charges in victim Derrick Calhoun's Dec. 22 shooting death: first-degree murder, discharging a firearm from a vehicle, possession weapons by a felon, and felony firearm.
Calhoun died of multiple gunshot wounds, and his death was a homicide, said the Wayne County Medical Examiner. He was 36.
Sherrod was arraigned Friday and remanded to custody. He will remain at Wayne County Jail until his case is decided. Sherrod is a parolee, who had been sentenced to three to 15 years in Feb. 2014, in relation to a Sept. 2013 armed robbery, according to Michigan Department of Corrections records. He was paroled in March 2017, and to stay under supervision until March 2019.
Authorities have issued a warrant for Adams' arrest. This is his second felony firearm offense, according to court records. He remains at large.
In May 2017, Adams was released from the Michigan prison system, where he'd been sentenced to seven to 15 years for felony firearms and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder in a May 2007 offense.
Detroit Police Department did not immediately respond to a request for information on the case.
