HEIGHTS — A local man is scheduled to face a preliminary examination of the evidence against him Sept. 12 for allegedly killing his friend on July 20.

Dearborn Heights resident Dakota Davis, 19, is accused of shooting 46-year old Marvin Armour in the chest about midnight at his house in the 26000 block of Powers and killing him, according to Dearborn Heights Police Sgt. Philip Wengrowski.

Davis was arraigned Aug. 29 at 20th District court before Judge Mark Plawecki.

Wengrowski said the police have kept the case under wraps because they were trying to piece together important information that could not be leaked to the public, which could have compromised the investigation.

“It was a pretty good investigation,” Wengrowski said. “We had to put a lot together and we didn’t want a lot to get out.”

Wengrowski added that more information on the possible motive will come out in court. But as of now, he has heard varying stories of the motive.

He declined to give further details on the circumstances of the shooting.

Davis turned himself in at the Dearborn Heights Justice Center Aug. 29.

Davis is being held in Wayne County Jail on a $250,000 bond, Wengrowski said.
