Charges sought against man in grad party death
Police in Roseville were meeting with prosecutors Monday morning to discuss a warrant request in the shooting death of a Clinton Township teen at a graduation party.
A 20-year-old Eastpointe man remained in custody Monday in the shooting, which took place at 12:40 a.m. Sunday in the 29000 block of Callahan.
Roseville Deputy Chief Donald Glandon said arraignment would be Tuesday or Wednesday for the suspect while the case remains under investigation.
“We are still putting a lot of stuff together and talking to people. They will sort out the charges sometime this morning,” Glandon said Monday.
Police said an initial investigation found that shortly before the shooting, there was an argument at the house. Three or four individuals were asked to leave, police said. The reason for the argument was unknown.
According to police, after two vehicles containing seven or eight people returned to the house, party-goers came outside and both groups began to fight. One of the suspects shot at least five rounds from a handgun in the direction of the party-goers, police said.
The victim, an 18-year-old male from Clinton Township, was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead a short time later. Police have not released the victim’s name.
Police impounded one suspect vehicle, a silver Pontiac G6. Suspects also were seen in a dark-colored vehicle, possibly blue or black sedan, police said.
A relationship, if any, between the victim and the suspects, was unknown, police said.
Anyone with information is asked to call Roseville police at (586) 447-4484 or (586) 775-2100.
