Detroit — A 22-year-old man faces eight felony charges, including first-degree murder, in a Christmas-week double shooting in Detroit. Police say he confronted the pair as they were out to sell a pair of skates.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Keyon Wilson-Ollis with eight felonies: first-degree premeditated murder, four counts of felony firearm, two counts of assault with intent to murder, and one count of fleeing and eluding police, fourth-degree.

Detroit police say on Wednesday at about 5:30 p.m. the suspect allegedly fatally shot a 37-year-old man and shot a 41-year-old woman and a 17-year-old male at a gas station on Seven Mile and Woodward.

Detroit police spokeswoman Sgt. Nicole Kirkwood said that while the victims were out to sell skates, the suspect is not who they were supposed to meet. They never met the potential buyer.

The shooter's presence was unrelated to the sale transaction, Kirkwood said. He was just in the same place the victims were and confronted them, police believe. He pulled a gun and shot both before fleeing. 

Medics transported the victims to the hospital where the 37-year-old man died of his injuries.

Police arrested a suspect a short time later at a gas station located in a strip mall at 8 Mike Road and Woodward.

He was arraigned on Saturday at 34th District Court in Romulus and denied bond.

Wilson-Ollis is due in Detroit's 36th District Court for his probable cause conference on Jan. 6 and his preliminary exam will be held Jan. 13.
