Sunday Times Newspapers

LINCOLN PARK – Four days after getting out of prison, a 34-year-old resident was shot in the hand by a 36-year-old man he let stay at his house in the 900 block of Moran.

Vincent Schroeder was arraigned in 25th District Court Tuesday in connection with the Feb. 20, shooting of the man, who was recently released after serving three years in prison for possession of marijuana.

Schroeder is charged with discharging a firearm in a building, assault with intent to do great bodily harm, possession of MDMA, assault with a deadly weapon, felony firearm and wearing body armor during the commission of a violent crime.

Judge David Zelnak set Schroeder’s bond at $500,000 cash or surety and told the defendant that if he does post bond he must wear a tether. Zelnak also ordered a psychiatric evaluation on Schroeder if he is released on bond.

Zelnak also ordered Schroeder not to have any contact with the victim.

Neighbors in the 900 block of Moran called 911 reporting a gunshot and a man yelling for help while running down the block to a corner gas station. Police and paramedics met the victim at the gas station and he was taken to Detroit Receiving with a gunshot wound to the hand.

Police went to the victim’s house and Schroeder surrendered without incident. He was apprehended 15 minutes after the first 911 call.
