Detroit man charged in deaths of gay men, transgender woman
DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say a man charged with fatally shooting three people and wounding two others at a Detroit home had targeted them because they were part of the LGBTQ community.
The Wayne County prosecutor’s office says 18-year-old Devon Robinson of Detroit faces three counts of first-degree murder and other charges in the May 25 shooting.
He’s due in court Friday. Records don’t list a lawyer for him.
Prosecutor’s spokeswoman Maria Miller provided the alleged motive in an email Friday but declined to release additional details.
Prosecutors say the shooting killed 21-year-old Alunte Davis, 20-year-old Paris Cameron and 20-year-old Timothy Blancher, all of Detroit. The prosecutor’s office says Davis and Blancher were gay men and Cameron was a transgender woman.
