Police say the 21-year-old is the prime suspect in the shooting of 17-year-old Marche Lowe. Chesterfield Township police held a news conference Tuesday morning. The police chief told reporters that Marche Lowe is in "grave condition at McLaren Macomb Hospital."

Thomas originally told police that a white male driving a Toyota was responsible for the shooting. Investigators determined that was false information. They originally took the boyfriend into custody on outstanding warrants. He is a 21-year-old male from Detroit.

Lowe was shot inside her house Monday afternoon.  A family friend and neighbor told 7 Action News that Lowe's mother said the teen was brain dead.

We're told Lowe attends Riverside Academy.
