Macomb Twp. man arrested in shooting
Macomb Township — A 54-year-old township man has been arraigned on two felony counts related to the shooting of a 29-year-old Detroit man Tuesday morning.
On Wednesday, Michael Anthony Green was video-arraigned in 41A District Court on one count of assault with intent to commit great bodily harm less than murder, which is punishable by 10 years in prison.
He was also charged with one count of weapons-felony firearm, a two-year felony.
Macomb County Sheriff’s Deputies were called to a scene on Newbury in the Madison Manor condominium complex about 1 a.m. Tuesday after receiving a 911 call.
Deputies met the victim who had suffered a non-life threatening wound in his arm. After giving deputies a false name, the man said he was walking across a field when he was shot by an unknown person.
The man was then transported by ambulance to Henry Ford Macomb Hospital.
Later deputies ascertained the victim’s real name and located evidence, including “wadding” from a shotgun shell that had been discharged from a shotgun on a street close to where the shooting is believed to have occurred.
Deputies then interviewed Green who denied shooting the victim, who is also the son of Green’s wife.
Deputies recovered a 12-gauge, Ithaca semi-automatic shotgun from Green’s home on Newbury. Authorities believe it’s the shotgun that was used in the shooting.
Green remains in the Macomb County Jail after failing to post a $25,000 cash or surety bond. His next court date is at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 16.
