Man accused of shooting two men at Village Grove Apartments has hearing delayed

By Kyle Feldscher

The preliminary hearing for a man accused of shooting two men early on Oct. 17 will be delayed for two weeks after a short court hearing Tuesday.

Jermaine Beverly, 24, is charged with two counts each of assault with intent to murder and assault with intent to commit bodily harm less than murder after police say he injured two men at the Village Grove Apartments last month. He is scheduled to return to court at 1 p.m. on Nov. 15 in 14A-1 District Court. He is being held in the Washtenaw County Jail on a $300,000 bond.

Police say Beverly and another man went into an unlocked apartment where three men and three women were hanging out. Beverly was asked to leave before opening fire, shooting the two men and robbing a third of his cash, according to police.

A 25-year-old Ypsilanti Township man suffered a single gunshot wound to the head and a 19-year-old Romulus man was shot once in the chest. No one else was injured. Both men are expected to survive, according to police.

Beverly is the only suspect charged in the shooting after police announced on Oct. 21 they would not be pursuing charges against the other man who was with Beverly.

Beverly is currently on probation for a 2009 third-degree criminal sexual conduct case, involving a victim between the ages of 13 and 15. He also has a conviction for possessing fewer than 25 grams of cocaine.

This information is incorrect. The preliminary hearing for this man was not delayed. It was held on November 2.

Someone should tell Jermaine that he need not suffer all these inconvenient arrests and trials: he just needs to get an expensive suit and claim he's a CEO, then he can do pretty much whatever he wants with impunity.
