A Chicago man accused of firing a gun at a Michigan gas station after failing to get a discount on cigarettes has rejected a plea deal and will go to trial.
A Kent County judge says the deal likely would put Tyrell Harris in prison for less than three years, while a conviction could lead to a much longer sentence. MLive.com reports that the 19-year-old chose a trial, which starts Tuesday.
Police say Harris fired several shots at a gas station in Grand Rapids after a clerk refused to give him a 25-cent discount on cigarettes. No one was hurt, but bullets struck a window and the cash register.
Assistant prosecutor Jay Stone says he may raise the charges to attempted murder, which carries a possible life sentence.
