On Nov. 26 around 5:20 p.m., City of Wayne police responded to HYPE Athletic Center on Howe Road in Wayne. At the scene, officers discovered the body of a 19-year-old Ypsilanti man suffering from gunshot wounds in the building's lobby.
It is alleged Perry contacted the 19-year-old male victim to buy marijuana. Police say when the victim started to drive away, Perry tried to take the marijuana without paying for it. It is further alleged Perry fired a gun at the 19-year-old, hitting him multiple times, officers say.
The victim then apparently made his way into the lobby of the center before medics arrived to take him to the hospital. He later succumbed to his injuries at the hospital, police say.
Perry is due back in court on Dec. 28.
