A 26-year-old Inkster man faces charges including first-degree murder in connection to a shooting which killed a 2-year-old girl and injured two other people, one of which is a 12-year-old girl who is in critical condition.
Raymone Bernard Jackson is accused of shooting and killing 2-year-old Kamiya Gross about 8:30 p.m. Tuesday in the 30000 block of Carlyle Street. It's alleged Jackson also shot Kamiya's father, 34-year-old Kenneth French, and 12-year-old Chelsea Lancaster, a friend of the family.
Sources say the gunman ran up to Kamiya and shot her in her right eye. He allegedly wanted to send a message to the girl's father before shooting him in the stomach. While running away, the gunman fired another shot which struck Chelsea. Police arrested a suspect Wednesday morning and said they were seeking another.
Jackson is charged with premeditated first-degree murder, torture, assault with intent to murder, felonious assault and felon in possession of a firearm. He was arraigned Thursday afternoon at Inkster's 22nd District Court. He was given no bond.
Meanwhile, Chelsea Lancaster is in critical condition while French is in stable condition.
Anyone interested in helping the family can visit a Charter One bank and donate to the Kamiya Gross Foundation.
