A 57-year-old Memphis, Mich., man has been charged in the March 17 wounding of another man, the Macomb County Sheriff's Office said.


Kirk Stewart was formally charged last week in 42-1 District Court in Romeo with assault with intent to murder, a felony punishable by life in prison, according to authorities. A judge ordered Stewart held at the Macomb County Jail on a $1 million bond and scheduled a probable cause conference for next Wednesday.

Sheriff's deputies were called last week Wednesday to help Memphis police with a shooting outside a building on Main Street south of Bordman, officials said. 

Police said a 57-year-old man entered the Memphis Police Department building and told officers he had just shot someone. 

A short time later, the victim of a shooting, a Fort Gratiot man, also 57 years old, had gone to a business near the site of the incident where someone called 911. Medics took the man, who had been shot once in the right leg, to a hospital.

Investigators said the suspect and victim are acquaintances.
