The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office has charged a 43-year-old woman with involuntary manslaughter and other charges related to a September 2017 shooting that police say was about car keys.

The shooting took place on Sept. 7 at about 2:50 p.m. on the 5000 block of Grayton, said Officer Holly Lowe, a Detroit Police Department spokeswoman. The area is just off East Warren.

Lowe, relaying preliminary information from the months-old event, says the suspect and a 43-year-old man had a "verbal dispute" over car keys. A local media account of the shooting tells the same basic story.

The suspect then allegedly produced a gun and shot the man in his left thigh.

Court records identify the victim as Phillip Snaed. The Wayne County Medical Examiner ruled his death a homicide, the result of "multiple gunshot wounds, with complications." He died days after being shot.


The woman faces charges that include manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter and felony firearm. Charges were filed on Jan. 31. Court records do not show that she has yet been arrested or arraigned.
