Police Say Father Was Trying To Buy Drugs

Detroit police said Wednesday that a 37-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a 2-year-old Detroit girl that stemmed from her father’s attempt to buy drugs.

 

Police Chief Warren Evans said Don Turner has been charged with two counts of assault with intent to murder, using a firearm during a felony and being a habitual offender.

 

Evans said Turner was arrested Monday night outside a drug house near where the girl was shot.

 

The girl’s father initially told police he randomly had been shot at while driving near Morang and Kelly streets, but later admitted it was while trying to buy drugs.

 

Evans said the girl and her 5-year-old brother were in the back of their father’s car when shots rang out just before 9 a.m.

 

The girl suffered a gunshot to her hip. It was not immediately known Wednesday if she had been released after treatment at a local hospital.

 

Turner is being held at the Wayne County Jail on $200,000 cash bond.  Detroit police said Wednesday that a 37-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the shooting of a 2-year-old Detroit girl that stemmed from her father’s attempt to buy drugs.
