19-year-old arraigned in connection to the shootings of 2 Detroit cops

DETROIT (WXYZ) - Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged 19-year-old Juwan Alexander Plummer in connection to the shootings of two Detroit police officers.

The incident took place on April 16 at 11:45 p.m.

Plummer has been arraigned on two counts each of Intentional Discharge of a Firearm in a Building Causing Serious Injury; Intentional Discharge of a Firearm in a Building Causing Injury, Felonious Assault. He has also been charged with four counts of Felony Firearm.

The officers were responding to a report of attempted break-ins at a home across the street, and Craig said the officers decided to check out the home across the street as well where the shooting eventually occurred.

A woman and her two sons, a 19-year-old and 14-year-old were detained by police. The 19-year-old reportedly opened fire fearing a burglary.

Craig said the teen who fired the shot is remorseful for what happened and just wants to make sure the officers will be okay.

A judge set bond at $25,000, 10 percent. The judge did not impose house arrest or a tether.

Plummer will be back in court for a probable cause hearing on April 26.
