19-year-old charged in shooting of Detroit cops released on bond

DETROIT (WXYZ) - The 19-year-old charged in the shootings of two Detroit police officers has been released on bond, Wayne County officials confirm.

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

The officers were responding to a report of attempted break-ins at a home across the street, and Chief James Craig said the officers decided to check out the house where Plummer lived -- 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 OK.

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