ALLEN PARK (WWJ) – An Allen Park man is jailed on attempted murder and other charges in connection with the shooting of a teen and a toddler on Christmas Day.
According to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, 60-year-old Charles Miller got into an argument at a house party Sunday night on on Agnes St. in Southgate, left and then allegedly fired several shots into the home.
A 16-year old and a 2-year old were wounded. Another person in the home, who prosecutors say is a CPL holder, ran after Miller. Miller is alleged to have fired at the CPL holder who returned fire, shooting Miller twice.
Police said none of the injuries were life-threatening.
In all, 16 charges have been filed against Miller: Four counts of assault with intent to commit murder, four counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, two counts of discharge at a building causing injury, four counts of assault with a dangerous weapon, one count of carrying a concealed weapon, and one count of felony firearm.
Miller is due in court for an arraignment Wednesday afternoon.
The injured children’s names have not been released.
