A 20-year-old Pontiac man was charged with involuntary homicide Thursday in the death of his 14-year-old cousin, authorities said. 

Damari Edward Mahone was arraigned on charges of involuntary manslaughter, a 15-year felony; controlled substance involving heroin, a 20-year felony; and two counts of possession of a firearm in commission of felony, a two-year felony, in 50th District Court. 

Mahone has no previous criminal history. Bond was denied. 

Oakland County Sheriff's deputies responded to a shooting about 2:40 a.m. Monday in the 100 block of Willard Street.  The victim already had been transported to McLaren-Oakland hospital by a witness. 

Deputies said the Yaharre Stennis, 14-year-old cousin of Mahone, was shot in the chest and pronounced dead by doctors.

Mahone was arrested at the hospital. During their investigation, deputies found a .357 caliber handgun, a .22 long rifle, 9.9 grams of heroin and a small amount of marijuana. 

Mahone's next court date is  July 24.
