DETROIT – A man is facing charges in connection with a nonfatal double shooting that occurred Wednesday at Sammy's Appliance store on West Warren Avenue in Detroit.

Javon Robert Dabney, 26, is accused of shooting a 59-year-old man who manages the appliance store and a 25-year-old employee. 

Police said Dabney purchased several appliances from the store and, after they were delivered, he complained to the store manager on the phone and in person. Dabney allegedly complained that a stove he had purchased did not work.

The manager allegedly told Dabney the store did not offer refunds, but it would replace the stove. It is alleged that Dabney argued about the stove and threatened the manager and employees of the store and left.
