Man charged in Detroit shooting that killed 3, wounded 2

By  | 

DETROIT (AP) - (6/7/19) - A young man has been charged with murder in a shooting at a Detroit home that left three people dead and two others wounded.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says 18-year-old Devon Robinson of Detroit faces three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of assault and weapons charges in the May 25 shooting on the city's east side. He's due in court Friday and records don't list a lawyer for him.

Prosecutors say the shooting killed 21-year-old Alunte Davis, 20-year-old Paris Cameron and 20-year-old Timothy Blancher, all of Detroit.

The Fair Michigan Justice Project, which assists authorities investigating serious crimes against LGBTQ people, worked with prosecutors on the case. The prosecutor's office says Davis and Blancher were gay men, and Cameron was a transgender woman, but didn't immediately detail what led to the shooting.
