WARREN, Mich. – Officials say two men in connection with a Warren gas station shooting are in custody.

Eric Boatwright, 25, and Jayquan Washington, 21, are accused of being involved in the shooting which took place at the Mobil gas station on 27035 Van Dyke Avenue on July 21, 2022, police say.

Washington is charged with carrying a concealed weapon and careless discharge of a firearm. Boatwright is charged with carrying a concealed weapon.

Washington was originally given a bond of $2,000, or 10%, and Boatwright was originally given a bond of $1,000, or 10%.

After a judge reviewed their cases, their bonds were re-evaluated to $100,000.

Officials say both suspects were transported to the Warren Police Department and have yet to post bond.

“I commend Judge Chmura for his detailed review in this matter,” said Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer. “I’m very happy that Judge Chmura reviewed this matter and considered the seriousness of this incident in setting a new bond. This was a dangerous incident that could have easily resulted in serious injuries. With the new bond amount, I am confident that these suspects will not be free to cause any additional harm to the community.”
