DETROIT (WWJ) – Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announcing charges in connection with a murder of a man at a Detroit gas station.

While two suspects have been publicly named — Worthy outlined charges against a third suspect in the case,  26-year-old Joseph Lucas, believed to have driven other suspects to and from the gas station the night of the murder.


The shooting happened just after 12 a.m. Thursday at the Marathon gas station along Gratiot Avenue at Eastburn Street, just south of 8 Mile Road.
