Detroit — A 19-year-old Detroit man has been denied bond as he faces three felony charges related to a homicide Thursday in his neighborhood on Detroit's east side.

Kayjuan Glover-Smith, 19, was arraigned Monday in Detroit's 36th District Court on charges of felony murder, felony firearm and carrying a concealed weapon. Magistrate Dawn White remanded him to Wayne County Jail.

The fatal shooting took place at about 9:10 p.m. Thursday night on the 15000 block of Gratiot, said Cpl. Dan Donakowski, a Detroit Police Department spokesman. That's north of East State Fair.

Police responded to the scene on a report that a man was down on the northbound side of Gratiot. Witnesses gave a description of the alleged shooter.

Medics transported the victim, 28-year-old Darryl Hicks, to the hospital, but he died from his injuries. The Wayne County Medical Examiner's Office says Hicks died of multiple gunshot wounds.

Glover-Smith is due for a probable cause conference on Aug. 12 and a preliminary examination on Aug. 19, both before Judge Michael Wagner.

Glover-Smith has asked for a court-appointed attorney.
