Suspect Arrested in Warrendale Shooting

Earlier this month, a young man was fatally shot inside a tobacco store at the corner of W. Warren Ave. and Minock. Yesterday evening, the Detroit Police Department announced that they have arrested the shooter.

On Tuesday, January 3, at approximately 6:30 p.m., Detroit Police responded to a priority run of a “fatal shooting.” Officers arrived at the scene and discovered the victim, a black male aged 22, fatally wounded.

After a thorough investigation by homicide investigators, the shooter was identified as Alon Turner, age 30 of Detroit. The police allege that Mr. Turner entered the business, confronted his victim, and fired shots, which fatally wounded him.

A murder warrant was issued for Mr. Turner. The Detroit Fugitive Apprehension Team arrested him on Thursday, January 19 in the 18000 block of Prairie without incident.

Mr. Turner was arraigned on felony charges of first degree murder and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. His next court date is scheduled on January 30 at 1:30 p.m.  Until then, he was remanded to the Wayne County Jail.

“The Detroit Police Homicide Investigators are determined to apprehend persons who commit heinous crimes,” Chief Ralph Godbee said in a prepared statement.  “With any homicide, the family needs and deserves to see those persons brought to justice.”
