Hearing Delayed In Gas Station Shooting Over Condoms

DETROIT (WWJ/AP) – A hearing has been postponed in the case of a Detroit gas station clerk who police say fatally shot a customer in the back during a dispute over the price of condoms.

Ibrahim Saleh of Dearborn was scheduled to appear Monday for a preliminary hearing on a first-degree murder charge in the March 10 killing of 24-year-old Michael Haynes. But the hearing was adjourned because a new attorney recently was retained to represent Saleh.

The hearing now will be held on April 27.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said Haynes knocked over several shelves of merchandise in the gas station, following an argument over the price of condoms. Authorities said Saleh entered the merchandise area and shot Haynes as he was leaving the business.

Saleh faces life without parole if convicted on the first degree murder charge. He is also charged with a gun crime.
