DETROIT - A 23-year-old Detroit man has been charged with first-degree murder in connection with a shooting that killed a 3-year-old girl and injured three of her family members.
Prosecutor Kym Worthy on Monday said Donnie Everett (click to view photo) is also charged with felony murder, five counts of assault with intent to murder, felon in possession of a firearm and felony firearm. He was arraigned Monday afternoon and is being held without bond at the Wayne County Jail. He is scheduled to appear in court again Oct. 30.
Everett is accused of being involved in the Oct. 16 shooting on Mogul Street that took the life of Amiracle Williams. Amiracle was caught in the crossfire of gunfire when it erupted outside her family's home.
Amiracle's 47-year-old father, Demetrius Williams, 40-year-old mother, Frieda Tiggs, and 17-year-old pregnant sister, Tkira Steen, were also hit by gunfire.
Detroit Police Chief James Craig said the shooting stemmed from fight between Tkira Steen and another female. It became physical in front of the family's home and Demetrius Williams, armed with a gun, saw the fight and tried to stop it.
Craig said it's unclear who fired the first shot, but that a suspect man who showed up at the home opened fire on Amiracle and her parents with a TEC-9 semi-automatic handgun.
Craig said the suspect and his getaway driver, who was shot, both are in custody. He said the shooter was wanted on an out-of-state warrant.
Worthy didn't clarify Everett's role in the shooting.
