On Wednesday, a 35-year-old Clinton resident was charged with the fatal shooting of a neighbor near a local apartment complex.
Antoine Cortes Harvey was indicted in District Court 41B on charges of premeditated murder of the first degree and firearms. He is being held on $ 1 million in cash or bail.
According to the Macomb County Attorney’s Office, Harvey is accused of shooting and killing Antonio Nile last Sunday afternoon.
“Police said there was a heated dispute between the neighbors in the complex,” said prosecutor Pete Lucido.
The incident took place at the Country Squire Apartments complex near Harper Avenue, north of 15 Mile Road. According to investigators, the suspect shot the victim several times and then fled on foot.
Harvey was eventually taken into custody by police.
Neil was taken to McLaren Macomb Hospital in Mount Clemens, where he died of his injuries.
Clinton City Police did not say what circumstances led to the shooting.
In reports on social media, Neil’s family reported that the woman threw a gun from the balcony of the suspect, who then shot the victim several times. The woman was apparently not charged.
A young family member witnessed the murder, the family said.
The 42-year-old Neil was self-employed and attended Osborne High School in Detroit, according to his Facebook page.
On his social media page, Harvey, the father of two young children, was called “Antoine-Killene Harvey.”
Harvey’s next appearance in court is a preliminary exam before 41B County Sebastian Lucid at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 22.
If convicted, Harvey faces up to life in prison without parole and an additional two years for using firearms during the crime.
