TAYLOR — Walter Clyde Hollandsworth, who was sought in a shooting on Dean Street and had eluded Taylor police and assisting agencies for weeks, turned himself in Sept. 30 without incident.
Police were seeking the 21-year-old resident in relation to a non-fatal shooting Sept. 12 on Dean Street. Hollandsworth is suspected in the shooting of a 20-year-old on the 6100 block of Dean. The man was shot in the abdomen, underwent surgery at Beaumont Hospital, Dearborn, and is now recovering at home.
Hollandsworth, accompanied by several other people, walked into the lobby of the Taylor Police Department. He identified himself and told the desk officer that “I want to turn myself in.”
Deputy Chief Richard Hopper took Hollandsworth into custody without incident and he was processed into the system. A Law Enforcement Information Network check on Hollandsworth indicated not only the felony warrant related to the shooting, but two other warrants out of Wayne County.
Hollandsworth was arraigned this Oct. 1 by 23rd District Court Judge Geno Salomone on assault with intent to commit murder charges and was held on a $750,000 cash bond. His pretrial conference is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Oct. 14 with an examination scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Oct. 21.
