 Nicholas White of Detroit is charged with first-degree murder and felony firearm in the early Monday slaying of Kermit McCants, 25, of Clinton Township.

The shooting occurred around 1:48 a.m. on the second level of the Motor City Casino parking structure.

White is accused of shooting McCants after the two men argued and then fled in his car. Police found McCants suffering from several gunshot wounds. He was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

White was arrested Tuesday by Detroit police and arraigned Wednesday by Magistrate Millicent Sherman of 36th District Court. A not-guilty plea was entered on his behalf.

White was denied bond and scheduled for a probable cause conference at 8:30 a.m. April 6 and a preliminary examination at 1:30 p.m. April 13, both before Judge Ronald Giles.
