A Detroit Coney Island worker is being arraigned today for allegedly shooting a customer following a dispute.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Engjull Thaql, 45, of Macomb, in connection with the shooting.
The incident happened on Sunday, May 20 at 2:40 p.m. at a Coney Island on Detroit's east side.

Thaql has been charged with one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, felonious assault, carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent, felon in possession of a firearm and four counts of felony fire arm.
