Here is the latest Michigan news from The Associated Press at 5:40 p.m. EST

DETROIT (AP) — A woman has been fatally shot and a 10-year-old boy wounded after four men fired into a vehicle in Southwest Detroit. Police say the vehicle was stopped at an intersection about 1 p.m. Tuesday when a Chrysler 300 pulled up behind it. The men exited the car, walked to the stopped vehicle and opened fire before driving away in the Chrysler. The 44-year-old driver was pronounced dead at the scene. The 10-year-old was in stable condition Wednesday at a hospital. No arrests have been made.

DETROIT (AP) — President Donald Trump has cleared the way for the release of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick. Kilpatrick has served more than seven years of a 28-year prison sentence for a series of federal corruption crimes. The announcement came in a flurry of clemency action in the final hours of Trump’s White House term. Kilpatrick’s sentence was commuted, or reduced, but his 24 felony convictions still will stand. In 2013, Kilpatrick was convicted of racketeering conspiracy, fraud, extortion and tax crimes. The government called it the “Kilpatrick enterprise,” a scheme to shake down contractors and reward allies. Kilpatrick’s allies said a 28-year prison term was extreme. The Trump White House noted that Kilpatrick taught Bible study in prison.

CALUMET, Mich. (AP) — A man in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is accused of joining the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol. Karl Dresch is charged with violent entry and other crimes. Dresch appeared in court by video Wednesday. Dresch was arrested Tuesday in Calumet in Houghton County. The FBI also filed search warrant requests to search his car and home. Those documents are loaded with details about Dresch’s social media posts related to the assault at the Capitol. He joked about the use of tear gas by police. Dresch said, “I love masks now!” The government wants to keep him in custody. 

DETROIT (AP) — The federal court in Detroit could have one of President Joe Biden’s first judicial appointments. U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts is taking senior status, which allows her to reduce her caseload. It also creates a slot for another judge, who would be nominated by Biden and considered by the Senate. The 69-year-old Roberts has been a judge for more than 20 years. She was nominated by President Bill Clinton in 1998. Roberts’ plan was announced soon after Biden became president Wednesday.
