2 teens charged with shooting Detroit man, 58, to death

Two 17-year-old Metro Detroiters were charged Thursday with shooting a 58-year-old man to death last week in Detroit.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy charged Damariyon Keon Coleman, a Detroit resident, and D’Anthony Kendricks of Warren as adults with first-degree murder and felony firearm in the Jan. 15 death of Brett Moore, also of Detroit.


Coleman and Kendricks were arraigned Thursday in 36th District Court in Detroit.

Officials said a magistrate remanded the two to jail. Their next court appearance has been scheduled for Feb. 2.

Moore was discovered around 9:50 p.m. suffering from multiple gunshot wounds following the report of a shooting in the 8300 block of Smart Street near Lonyo and West Warren Avenue in Detroit. Moore was pronounced dead at a hospital.

 Coleman and Kendricks allegedly went to a residence, knocked on the door and asked if Moore was there. When Moore opened the door, the teens shot him several times, according to authorities.


The prosecutor's office said a police investigation led to the arrest of the teens. More details about the shooting are expected to be presented at the preliminary examination, which has not yet been scheduled.
