Man arrested, held on $300,000 cash bond for shooting at Village Grove apartments
One man has been charged with assault with intent to murder in connection with a shooting at Village Grove apartments in Ypsilanti Township early Monday morning, police said.
Jermaine Jeremiah Beverly, 24, was arrested on a charge of failure to comply with the Michigan Sexual Offender Notification and Registration Act on Wednesday, court records stated. He was charged in connection with the shooting Thursday, according to Washtenaw County Sheriff's Office spokesperson Derrick Jackson.
Beverly faces two counts of assault with intent to murder, two counts of assault with intent to cause bodily harm less than murder, one count each of armed robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon, intimidating a witness, being a felon in possession of a firearm and being in possession of a firearm while committing a felony, in addition to the charge of failing to comply with the sex offenders registration act, according to court records.
He is being held on a $300,000 cash bond at the Washtenaw County Jail, Jackson said.
Washtenaw County Sheriff’s deputies were called at 2:50 a.m. to investigate a shooting at the Village Grove apartments. Police said two men entered an apartment in the 1100 block of South Harris Road and an argument began.
The shooting left one 25-year-old man in critical condition and a 19-year-old man in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, according to police.
Police were not immediately sure why the argument began and what led to shots being fired.
Beverly was convicted of third-degree criminal sexual conduct in July 2009, in connection with a June 2007 incident, according to state records. He is listed as being on probation in Washtenaw County until July 2014, records state.
State records show one of the conditions of his probation is to not own or possess a weapon. If he is convicted of being in possession of a firearm for Monday’s shooting, he can face the maximum sentence for third-degree criminal sexual conduct, which is 15 years in prison.
Beverly also has a previous conviction for possession of less than 25 grams of cocaine from an incident in September 2005.
Jackson was not able to comment Thursday on the condition of the men who were taken to the hospital after the shooting.
