Eastpointe — A 21-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with Sunday's shooting death of an Eastpointe resident in his basement.

Eastpointe Police on Monday posted on the department's Facebook page that Eastpointe resident Jeremy Schodowski was arrested and charged with second degree murder, involuntary manslaughter and other crimes related to Sunday's shooting in the basement of a home on Normandy Street.

The 20-year-old victim, whose name was not released, died Monday, police said.

"Schodowski ... was arraigned in the 38th District Court (Monday), where Judge (Carl) Gerds held him on a $2 million bond," police said in the statement. "The investigation continues ... our deepest condolences to the victim's family."

The shooting was reported about 1:10 a.m. Sunday on the 23000 block of Normandy, which is north of East Nine Mile and west of Kelly.

Two other people present during the shooting said that they and the victim were hanging out when a person they didn't know "ran down the basement stairs and shot the victim for no apparent reason," according to an earlier statement from Eastpointe Police.

After firing the shot, the suspect fled, the witnesses said. 

Medics took the victim to a hospital, where he was listed in critical condition before dying Monday. 

Sunday's shooting is the second time someone's been shot in Eastpointe this month in the area of Nine Mile and Kelly.

On March 7, at about 11 a.m., police arrived at a home in the area of Tuscany and Oak — south of East Nine Mile, west of Kelly — to find a 28-year-old male lying inside the front door with gunshot wounds to his chest.
