Double Shooting – Killed – Howard Gardella Jr (Detroit, MI)

Howard Gardella Jr\

DETROIT (WXYZ) – When 56-year-old Howard Gardella Sr. answered his front door Monday around noon, he likely thought the men standing on his porch were customers, but the two apparent strangers were there to rob Gardella who sells “medical marijuana” with his son, Howard Gardella Jr.

Once the two men were inside Gardella’s home on Northrop Street near Grand River, they shot at the father and the son.

A bullet only grazed the father in his neck, but Howard Gardella Jr. was fatally shot.

Relatives say Gardella Jr. lived in Redford with his 2-year-old son.

Killed – Duraid Aziz Lossia (Farmington Hills, MI)

Duraid Aziz Lossia

FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) – Farmington Hills Police are investigating the murder of a party store owner in Farmington Hills.

It’s happened at Tom’s Party Store on Inkster Road, just north of 8 Mile.

Police were called to the scene about 12:30 pm Saturday. Witnesses had reported an armed robbery where the victim had been shot.

As an officer approached the scene he was flagged down by a witness who said the robbery and shooting occurred at the party store.

Once at the scene a witness told police he was walking into the party store at the same time that an African American man was walking out. The witness said that once he was inside the store he saw that the clerk had been shot.

Farmington Hills party store owner Duraid Lossia let customers who were short on cash have items and pay for them later and gave people down on their luck odd jobs to help them out.

Those are the kinds of good deeds many recalled during a candlelight vigil held in front of his store Sunday night, as police continue to search for his killer. Those who knew him said the 59-year-old Lossia loved helping people out.

Dozens of people showed up in the light rain to remember the man they knew as Dave. Some had known him for decades and held candles, told stories, cried, hugged or sang songs with others.

Mass Shooting – Wounded – Man (Fruitland Township, MI)

male

FRUITLAND TOWNSHIP, MI – One man is dead and three others were wounded by gunfire following an altercation at a Fruitland Township house party early Saturday morning, police said.

Muskegon County Sheriff Dean Roesler said the shooting was reported around 3:30 a.m. after a group of uninvited guests showed up to a house party in the 2300 block of West McMillan Road in Fruitland Township.

At least one male in that group was armed and fired into a crowd of people and shot and killed Gary Lee Ogreen, 21.

The others injured were: Nicholas Aaron Gifford, shot in the right thigh; Julius Scott Pamer, shot in the buttocks; and Cody James Sharlow, who was shot in the stomach and hip area.

Ogreen lived at the home with another friend. The others injured were friends of Ogreen’s, Roesler said.

A motive for the shooting wasn’t clear, but Roesler said it occurred after the shooter and his friends showed up to the party uninvited and were asked to leave.

FRUITLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A judge has sentenced a 22-year-old western Michigan man to 30 to 65 years in prison for fatally shooting a 21-year-old man and wounding of three others outside a house party in Muskegon County.

Deontay Black-Wickliffe pleaded no-contest in July to second-degree murder, attempted murder and having a firearm in a felony.

Muskegon County Circuit Judge Timothy G. Hicks sentenced Black-Wickliffe on Thursday after rejecting his request to withdraw the plea.

Authorities say Gary Ogreen was killed following a fight with uninvited guests about 3:30 a.m. on Dec. 21, 2013, at his home in Fruitland Township, northwest of Muskegon.

Killed – Edwin Criswell (Walled Lake, MI)

Edwin Criswell

A former Marine and Iraq war veteran was sentenced to 4 to 15 years in prison today for the 2013 shooting death of his neighbor following a dispute over a dog running loose in their Walled Lake community.

Charles Jacob Simkins, 29, shackled in orange jail garb and surrounded by deputies, told the packed courtroom that he was sorry he had shot and killed Edwin Criswell the night of Dec. 17, 2013, in Criswell’s front yard.

“To Mr. Criswell’s family, I am very sorry. I know my words are empty. I wish probably as much as you that this never happened,” he said.

Simkins shot Criswell a few doors down from Simkins’ home in the 1100 block of Sigma Road, after the men grappled in Criswell’s front yard. Simkins, according to police, had gone to Criswell’s house looking for his beagle, which had been running loose in the neighborhood.

Simkins used a handgun to shoot Criswell in the legs, striking an artery. Criswell bled to death before help could arrive as Simkins panicked, called 911 and begged for ambulances to arrive.

The 911 call came in shortly before 10 p.m. that cold snowy night last December.

“Somebody help!” the man shouted to the operator. “There’s been a shooting. Send them quick. Call them quick…he’s on the ground.”

The man making the call, Charles Simkins, 28, had just shot his neighbor, Edwin Criswell, 45, in the leg, following a dispute over Simkins’ dog, which had been running their Walled Lake neighborhood.

Double Shooting – Killed – John Wood (Merrill, MI)

John Wood

MERRILL, MI — A 38-year-old Merrill man is dead following a double shooting in the village Saturday, Dec. 14, according to police.

Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel said the two men were shot during a domestic dispute involving two men and a woman.

Both males are believed to be Merrill residents, Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel reported.

The Michigan State Police crime lab was called, and both were transported to hospitals. A 33-year-old male was transported to Ann Arbor and is listed in serious condition. The other male, 38-year-old John Wood of Merrill died from his injuries, Federspiel said.

John Wesley Wood suffered a fatal gunshot wound Saturday, Dec. 14, at a residence on East Saginaw near Melze in the village of Merrill, the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Department reported. Dave Averill, 33, also suffered a gunshot wound at the residence, Wood’s friends said. A woman at the residence called 911 after the shooting.

SAGINAW, MI — Prosecutors have charged a Merrill man with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the shooting death of his longtime friend.

Saginaw County District Judge M. Randall Jurrens on Wednesday, Jan. 8, signed a warrant that charges David D. Averill Jr. in the Dec. 14 death of John Wood.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to Averill’s house about 10 p.m., officials have said. Both men were transported to a Saginaw hospital, where Wood died, police said. Averill later was transported to Ann Arbor for treatment for his injuries, police said.

Averill’s arrest warrant alleges he killed Wood “during the commission of an unlawful act not naturally tending to cause death or great bodily harm” and lists that act as “careless discharge of a weapon and/or discharge of a weapon while intoxicated and/or as a result of the negligent omission by (Averill) to perform a legal duty.” The warrant lists that legal duty omission as “failure to carry a weapon in a safe manner.”

The warrant indicates the gun involved in the incident was a rifle.

Double Shooting – Wounded – Man (Merrill, MI)

male

MERRILL, MI — A 38-year-old Merrill man is dead following a double shooting in the village Saturday, Dec. 14, according to police.

Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel said the two men were shot during a domestic dispute involving two men and a woman.

Both males are believed to be Merrill residents, Saginaw County Sheriff William Federspiel reported.

The Michigan State Police crime lab was called, and both were transported to hospitals. A 33-year-old male was transported to Ann Arbor and is listed in serious condition. The other male, 38-year-old John Wood of Merrill died from his injuries, Federspiel said.

John Wesley Wood suffered a fatal gunshot wound Saturday, Dec. 14, at a residence on East Saginaw near Melze in the village of Merrill, the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Department reported. Dave Averill, 33, also suffered a gunshot wound at the residence, Wood’s friends said. A woman at the residence called 911 after the shooting.

SAGINAW, MI — Prosecutors have charged a Merrill man with involuntary manslaughter in connection with the shooting death of his longtime friend.

Saginaw County District Judge M. Randall Jurrens on Wednesday, Jan. 8, signed a warrant that charges David D. Averill Jr. in the Dec. 14 death of John Wood.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to Averill’s house about 10 p.m., officials have said. Both men were transported to a Saginaw hospital, where Wood died, police said. Averill later was transported to Ann Arbor for treatment for his injuries, police said.

Averill’s arrest warrant alleges he killed Wood “during the commission of an unlawful act not naturally tending to cause death or great bodily harm” and lists that act as “careless discharge of a weapon and/or discharge of a weapon while intoxicated and/or as a result of the negligent omission by (Averill) to perform a legal duty.” The warrant lists that legal duty omission as “failure to carry a weapon in a safe manner.”

The warrant indicates the gun involved in the incident was a rifle.

Meanwhile, as David D. Averill Jr. sits in jail awaiting his next preliminary hearing date, he and his wife also are fighting a wrongful death lawsuit filed by John Wood’s mother.

Killed – Altin Avdyli (Harper Woods, MI)

Altin Avdyli

A $25,000 reward is being offered to solve a Harper Woods restaurant owner’s 2013 death.

Altin Avdyli was shot to death Dec. 6, 2013, in an alley behind the Royal Grill on Kelly Road — and it was all caught on tape.

The video shows a man by a dumpster run out and confront Avdyli. A short scuffle ensues and Avdyli is shot.

Seconds later, the gunman drives off with the Avdyli’s gray 2010 Chebrolet Camaro, running over his body in the process.

Avdyli moved to the United States from Kosovo in 2006 and had only recently purchased the restaurant, which is now closed.

Police were called to the area of Old Homestead Drive and Kelly Road around 10 p.m. Friday and found the victim’s body behind the restaurant, Harper Woods Public Safety Director Jim Burke reported.

The 31-year-old Avdyli, of nearby Roseville, was shot in the neck. His 2010 Chevrolet Camaro was stolen. Police say the gray car has distinctive black racing stripes. The Michigan license plate number is CFZ-9555.

Double Murder/Suicide – Killed – Male Teen – Isaac Miller (Lansing, MI)

Isaac Miller

The names of the two victims and alleged shooter in Thursday’s double murder-suicide in Lansing have been released.

MLive media partner WLNS said police have identified Randy Keith, 52, as the shooter. The two victims are his 37-year-old wife, Christine Keith, and her son, 14-year-old son Isaac Miller.

WLNS says police believe Keith then shot himself.

Officers arrived at the house on the 700 block of W. Saginaw Ave. around 7:20 p.m. Thursday.

LANSING – Lansing Police discovered the bodies of three people on Thursday night in what is being called a double-murder suicide.

Officers responded to a report that a woman appeared to be dead inside the home on the 700 block of W. Saginaw Ave. around 7:20 p.m. last night. According to Capt. Daryl Green, officers made an emergency entry into the home and found an unresponsive female lying on the floor.

Once inside the home, officers discovered a total two more bodies. Investigators are actively working the case and, according to Green, preliminary reports suggest that the deaths are a part of an apparent double murder-suicide.

Numerous times in recent years, Randy Keith reportedly threatened to kill his wife if she ever left him, court documents say.

‘Threats of shooting me to death with one of his hunting rifles were par for the course,’ Christine Keith wrote in a petition for a personal protection order filed in April in Ingham County Circuit Court.
Sadly she later withdrew that order.

In her first divorce filing, as well as in the personal protection order, Christine Keith outlined what she said was her husband’s controlling, erratic and sometimes violent behavior. The couple were married in 2003 but just five years later they were filing for divorce.

“Threats of shooting me to death with one of his hunting rifles were par for the course,” Christine Keith wrote in a petition for a personal protection order filed in April in Ingham County Circuit Court. She later withdrew that order.

Killed – Lafayette Martin (Saginaw, MI)

Lafayette Martin

Thu, 05 Dec 2013 00:53:54 GMT — A 53-year-old man has been charged with murder in the death of a Saginaw woman over the weekend.

Clinton Miller is charged with open murder and three felony firearm counts in the Nov. 30 death of 49-year-old Lafayette Martin.

Police say Martin was shot Saturday around 3 a.m. in the 39 hundred block of Randolph hear Montgomery. She died less than 24 hours later at the hospital.

Miller was arrested immediately after the shooting. He is lodged in the Saginaw County Jail without bond.

SAGINAW, MI — Clinton J. Miller will serve at least 13 years in prison for fatally shooting his longtime girlfriend in November.

Miller appeared before Saginaw County Circuit Judge James T. Borchard on Thursday, March 13, and pleaded no contest to manslaughter of Lafayette Martin and possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony-second offense.

In exchange for the plea, prosecutors will drop an open count of murder that includes first-degree premeditated murder, a charge that carries a mandatory penalty of life in prison without the possibility of parole.

Prosecutors will recommend that Borchard hand down a minimum sentence of eight years for the manslaughter charge. Miller, 53, first will have to serve the mandatory, consecutive five years for the second-offense felony firearm charge.

In relation to the date in question, Gust said Martin sometime before 3 a.m. came over to Miller’s house at 3925 Randolph on Saginaw’s southeast side. Miller was intoxicated, Gust said, and as his and Martin’s argument escalated, he fired his gun at her.

Killed – Boy – Jeremiah Davis (Dearborn Heights, MI)

Jeremiah Davis

DEARBORN HEIGHTS — An 11-year-old boy who was shot in the head by a teen died Nov. 26, two days after he was shot.

The child was shot Nov. 24 at a residence in the 5600 block of Kingsbury. Police believe the shooting was accidental.

The boy was taken to Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit.

Police believe a 15-year-old boy, whose mother dates the dead boy’s father, shot the 11-year-old with a revolver.

The boys reportedly were close and the shooting appears to have happened while they were playing with the gun.

The 15-year-old boy pleaded guilty to manslaughter after shooting 11-year-old Jeremiah Davis on Nov. 24, 2013 at his father’s house in Dearborn Heights. The Press & Guide does not name minors involved in the juvenile justice system.

Jeremiah Davis was taken to Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit and died two days later from the effects of a gunshot wound to his head. His mother believes the teen knew what he was doing when he held the gun to her son’s head.

His mother, Cassandra Davis, said she’s appalled the teen will be free after just a few years under the state’s juvenile sentencing guidelines.

HEIGHTS — The teen charged with accidently shooting and killing an 11-year-old boy last year has been sentenced to at least two years in a secure juvenile facility.

The sentence was given by Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Karen Braxton last Monday.

Killed – Boy – Tyler Dunn (Marlette Township, MI)

Tyler Dunn

TOWNSHIP, MI, — A 12-year-old Marlette boy who fatally shot his 11-year-old friend has pleaded guilty to a charge of careless discharge of a firearm.

The boy on April 10 appeared in Sanilac County Circuit Court Juvenile Division. He faces a maximum two-year sentence if the court decides to sentence him as an adult, said Brian Henderson, Sanilac County court administrator.

The boy’s sentencing is set for April 29, Henderson said, and he could not say when Magistrate Heather Zang, who is overseeing the case, will determine if the boy is sentenced as an adult or juvenile.

The victim was identified as Tyler Dunn of Marlette.

During a sleepover in November 2013 at a residence on the 4000 block of Howard in Marlette Township, the 12-year-old was showing Tyler a lever action .30-30 model rifle when it discharged, according to police.

The 12-year-old called 911 after the shooting at about 8:20 p.m. No adults were home at the time, said Sanilac County Sheriff Garry Biniecki in December.

Biniecki said at the time he believed the shooting was accidental.

The boy’s father, Jerry Northrup, will stand trial May 15 on charges of firearm possession by a felon and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, Henderson said.

“The lack of adult supervision, the presence of guns, and the failure to take appropriate measures to ensure the guns present in the house were out of reach, contributed to this incident,” said Young in a statement.

A 12-year-old Sanilac County boy who pleaded guilty to reckless discharge of a firearm in the accidental fatal shooting of a friend has now received a sentence that includes 30 days in a detention facility.

The boy will serve 10 days in a facility now. After probation, it will be determined if he will serve the additional time.

The probation terms include living with his mother, being on a tether, community service, attending school, and a strict curfew. Restitution to the family of the victim also must be paid.

SANDUSKY — The Marlette Township father who pleaded guilty to charges in connection with the shooting death of an 11-year-old boy at his house was sentenced to jail June 18.

Jerry Northrup was sentenced to 365 days in jail for firearm possession by a felon and 90 days in jail for contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to the Sanilac County prosecuting attorney’s office.

Triple Shooting – Killed – Kenneth Darden (Detroit, MI)

Kenneth Darden

Two people are dead and a third wounded after an apparent home invasion late Thursday night on the city’s west side.

According to the Detroit Police Department, the incident occurred at about 11:30 p.m. at a home in the 8880 block of Pinehurst Street in an area north of Joy Road and west of Wyoming Avenue.

Police said people were inside the home playing cards when shots were fired into the building, followed by the front door being kicked in by three heavily armed men.

Several people fled to the basement while two men ran to a rear enclosed back porch where they were shot and killed.

One of the witnesses said he heard a shooter ask “where’s the work” before the victims were shot.

The man who was wounded told police he was pulling up to the house when he saw three men with AK-47-type rifles approaching the house.

The perpetrators shot at the man in the shoulder as he attempted to back up his vehicle while honking the horn. The wounded victim ended up backing his car into a tree before he fled the area on foot.

He then flagged down another vehicle, which took him to Sinai-Grace Hospital, where he is in stable condition.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office said the victims have been identified by family members as Kenneth Darden, 40, who was shot in the abdomen.

Killed – Kathleen Hawley (Mecosta Township, MI)

Kathleen Hawley

MECOSTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — One woman was killed and three others were sexually assaulted during an overnight standoff at a home in West Michigan, police said Friday.

A woman was on the phone with her boyfriend Thursday night when a man with a shotgun entered through an unlocked door, said Mecosta County Sheriff Todd Purcell.

A 911 call placed later sent police to the home in Mecosta Township, about 40 miles northeast of Grand Rapids, beginning a 10-hour standoff. Police could not see inside and had only sporadic contact with the suspect, now known to be a 26-year-old man who lived across the street.

The woman and two of her friends were repeatedly sexually assaulted, and another woman was fatally shot, authorities said. Three children also were in the home.

By 4:42 a.m. Friday, the suspect allowed the children — two 7-year-old boys and an infant girl — to leave the home, The Grand Rapids Press and WZZM-TV reported. Two women in their 20s also were released.

The remaining hostage came out about two hours later followed by the suspect, who is in custody and faces possible murder and criminal sexual conduct charges, Purcell said.

A fourth woman, a 58-year-old from Morley, was shot and killed Thursday night before police arrived, the sheriff said.

When the man entered the home, police said, the woman immediately ended the call with her boyfriend, who became concerned and contacted the woman’s mother to check on her. The mother headed over to the home with a friend but was not able to make contact with anyone inside.
Meanwhile, the suspect called his aunt from inside the home, and she called emergency dispatchers.

The incident began at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday when police were called to a home on Cramer Drive on reports of a shot fired. Upon arrival, deputies were told that a gunman was inside with hostages.

BIG RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) — A man who had a 10-hour standoff with police in western Michigan has been sentenced to life in prison without parole after being convicted of murder and sexual assault.

Duncan Willis was accused of fatally shooting 58-year-old Kathleen Hawley and sexually assaulting three other women in November at a home in Mecosta Township, about 40 miles north of Grand Rapids.

A judge sentenced him Wednesday to life in prison plus 202 years.

He was found guilty earlier of first-degree murder, first-degree criminal sexual conduct, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent and felony firearm.

MECOSTA TOWNSHIP, Mich. – The family of a Morley woman who was killed during a hostage situation this week describes her as a caretaker and an avid dog lover.

The victim’s niece told FOX 17 Saturday afternoon that Hawley leaves behind two children and four grandchildren. She was married to a retired police officer until he passed away from cancer. “She took care of her husband until his last breath. Aunt Kat was a caretaker, always looking out for her family,” she said.

“She adored her dogs. She had many throughout her home,” said Hawley’s niece.

Killed – Terrance Moore (Saginaw, MI)

Terrance Moore

SAGINAW, MI — Police have identified a 33-year-old man found shot to death in Saginaw last night as Terrance Moore.

Moore of Saginaw was found dead about 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20, near a vacant house at 1617 Farwell near North 12th, the Saginaw Police Department confirmed.

SAGINAW, MI — Prosecutors have charged a 16-year-old in connection with the Nov. 20 homicide of Terrance Moore on Saginaw’s North Side.

Dejan L. Hoosier is charged with an open count of murder and three firearm offenses in Moore’s shooting death on Farwell near North 10th.

Hoosier surrendered to authorities late Friday, Dec. 20, and was arraigned Monday by Saginaw County District Judge Terry L. Clark.

Police found the 33-year-old Moore shot to death about 8:15 p.m. near a vacant house at 1617 Farwell. A neighbor reported hearing up to eight gunshots from a “large-caliber gun” followed by another round of gunfire.

A 16-year-old could spend another 22 years behind bars for the November murder of Terrance Moore on the city’s North Side.

Dejan L. Hoosier appeared before Saginaw County Chief Circuit Judge Fred L. Borchard on Tuesday, April 1, and pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Prosecutors will recommend that Borchard hand down a minimum sentence not to exceed 20 years for the murder charge and the mandatory, consecutive two years in prison for the felony firearm charge.

Killed – Monica Anderson (Traverse City, MI)

Monica Anderson

TRAVERSE CITY, MI — A 28-year-old woman is dead after a man said he tried to commit suicide but fired a fatal shot that struck her instead.

The shooting happened around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at an apartment at 3 Mile Road and Aero Park Drive, UpNorthLive.com is reporting.

The man, 33, suffered a gunshot wound to his hand and underwent surgery at Munson Medical Center, the news station reported.

TRAVERSE CITY, MICHIGAN — The former boyfriend of a Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa tribal citizen, Monica Anderson, 28, was sentenced to 11.5 to 19 years in prison for the shooting her to death last November during what he told law authorities a suicide attempt at the apartment he shared with her.

On March 21, 2014, Robert Caldwell, 33, a non-tribal member, pleaded guilty to accidentally killing Anderson. He pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter, discharge of a firearm while under the influence, felony firearm and resisting and obstructing police, according to court records.

A police report states Caldwell told authorities that he drank alcohol, loaded a .45-caliber pistol owned by Anderson and held it to his forehead as he sat at the bottom of their apartment’s staircase.

He told authorities he flinched and the gun fired; a round missed him and struck and mortally wounded Anderson.

Killed – Male Teen – Charles O. White, Jr (Muskegon Heights, MI)

Charles O. White, Jr

MUSKEGON, MI – “Horseplay” with a handgun led to 17-year-old Vance Thompson accidentally and fatally shooting his close friend, Charles O. White Jr., also 17, in the head as the two walked down the street, according to Muskegon Heights police.

The shooting happened around 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 19, at Leahy Street and Hume Avenue in Muskegon Heights. White died after more than a day on life support at a local hospital.

That tragic alleged set of facts led to Thompson’s being charged Thursday, Nov. 21, with three felonies: involuntary manslaughter, punishable by up to 15 years in prison; tampering with evidence, punishable by up to 10 years; and felony firearm, which carries a mandatory sentence of two years to be served before any other sentence.

Jenna Guarascio

Inkster police are searching for a gunman who killed a 21-year-old woman Sunday night.

Police Chief Hilton Napoleon said the victim and her boyfriend were in a car outside a home on Parkwood Street when someone walked up and opened fire into the car.

Family members have identified the victim as Jenna Guarascio.

Napoleon said the 21-year-old was killed, but she may not have been the target of the attack.

“We don’t know if the boyfriend was the object of the attack, but it appeared to be because most of the shots were fired in the area that he was sitting,” he said.
