South Lyon — A 19-year-old has been arrested in the shooting death Wednesday of 17-year-old Dylan Stamper and the wounding of his father, Kevin.

The suspect turned himself in Friday morning, police said, and could be arraigned before Monday. He is being held at the Oakland County Jail.

South Lyon Police Sgt. Chris Faught said officers were already responding to a 9-1-1 call from a woman in the Stamper home about a potential break-in around 9 p.m. when they were notified that shots had been fired.

The son and father were found in the living room, not far from the front door of the house in the 300 block of Liberty Street.

Dylan was pronounced dead at the scene. Kevin Stamper, 43, is in critical but stable condition.

Faught said the suspect did not live at the home, one block south of 10 Mile. Investigators have sent a warrant request seeking murder charges.

A notice on the South Lyon Police Facebook page thanked the Oakland County Sheriff's Office for its help, specifically the evidence technicians, Special Investigation Unit detectives and Fugitive Apprehension Team.

Dylan's mother, Corinne, has set up a GoFundMe account to help with funeral costs. As of 5:30 p.m. Friday, more than $7,700 had been raised.
