Men charged in July shooting to stand trial in February

By Kyle Feldscher

The jury trials for two men allegedly involved in a July shooting in Superior Township are scheduled to begin in February, according to court records.


Kennyon Jackson

Kennyon Jackson and Tory Warren, both of Ypsilanti, have been charged in a shooting at 11:50 p.m. July 11 in the 200 block of South Grove.

According to police, Jackson, 19, and Warren, who was 20 when charged, were meeting with a man they both knew about some high-end sunglasses when Jackson pulled out a gun and fired at least two shots at him. The victim suffered a gunshot wound to the mouth and had a bullet removed from his tongue at a hospital.


Tory Warren

Court records show that Jackson and Warren are scheduled to stand trial at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 21 in Washtenaw County Trial Court Judge Melinda Morris’ courtroom. Jackson will return to court for a pretrial hearing at 1:30 p.m. Jan. 9, court records show.

Warren turned himself in two weeks after the shooting, but it took police until November to track down and arrest Jackson.

On Nov. 1, Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office deputies and Ypsilanti police went to a home in the 9000 block of MacArthur Boulevard, where they had been told they could find a man wanted by police.

Officers arrived at the home, where a party was going on, and found Jackson hiding in the basement. He was arrested and arraigned on Nov. 1 and is currently being held at the Washtenaw County Jail on a $100,000 cash or surety bond.

Warren is free after posting a $5,000 surety bond after he was arraigned in July.

Jackson is charged with assault with intent to murder, armed robbery, possessing a firearm during the commission of a felony, carrying a weapon with unlawful intent, discharging a firearm in a building and possessing a firearm while being a felon. He's currently on probation for a 2009 incident where he was caught with fewer than 25 grams of cocaine, according to state records.

Warren has been charged with assault with intent to murder, armed robbery and possessing a firearm while being a felon.

My 2 cents is that, someone stated that "it is the city's problem". i feel that it is all our problem's! How can "we" point and say or blame parents, OUR court sytem or law enforcement agencies for "our " young people" when we as a whole have allowed our children / young people to be misled into no longer having values that harmful to themselves and society. Again, it's not a city's problem, its much more than a mere problem and It's OURS ! my 2 cents.

He was convicted of possessing cocaine and assaulting a police officer when he was 17. He is/was on probation and now alledgedly committed this crime. Yes--lets judge the parents.

Parents can do everything right in raising a child. Once they become an adult, the person will either remember the lessons taught or throw them out of the window. Let's not judge the parents of the alleged actions of these adults.

This happened on Macarthur Blvd. Bad things happen on Macarthur Blvd.

"He's currently on probation for a 2009 incident where he was caught with fewer than 25 grams of cocaine, according to state records." I'm surprised they didn't just pick him up when he checked in for probation? it ain't so....he SKIPPPED? Then why the low bond?

He "allegedly" shoots someone in the face over a pair of sunglasses and he could be released with a $10,000 bail. My understanding is that bail is 10% of bond. Some please tell me that I am misunderstanding how bail and/or bond works.
