DEARBORN — Two Dearborn men face murder, carjacking, assault and arson charges in connection with the Oct. 19 shooting death of Delshon Scott, 28, in Detroit.
Tyrell Jones, 20, and Ahmad Ayoub, 25, both of Dearborn, were charged with felony murder, two counts of carjacking, assault with intent to murder and arson preparation to burn property in connection with the murder of 28-year-old Delshon Scott.
Both men were denied bond and remain in Wayne County Jail.
Ayoub and Jones are scheduled for a preliminary examination of the evidence against them on Nov. 18 in the 36th District Court.
Scott was found shot in back Oct. 19 in the 8000 block of Fielding in Detroit and died as emergency first responders transported him to the hospital.
Scott’s vehicle, a red 2005 Ford Focus reportedly was stolen during the murder. Police said that before Scott was killed, the pair carjacked a man and shot another man that same day.
With Scott’s death, he left behind his pregnant girlfriend and 7-year-old daughter.
Jones, and another suspect, also has been charged in the Oct. 4 shooting death of De’Angela Richardson, 42, in an apartment building in the 18400 block of Joy Road.
Richardson, a mother from Detroit, was engaged to be married next year.
Police said Jones and James Dent, 20, entered the leasing office where Richardson worked, and ordered that she and another person get on the floor before shooting Richardson in the thigh.
Richardson was transported to a local hospital where she died on Oct. 10
Jones and Dent face felony murder, armed robbery and two counts of felony firearm. Both were denied bond.
Dearborn police arrested Jones for receiving and concealing stolen property and driving without a license, and was held on a $50,000 bond for those charges.
Dent is scheduled for a preliminary exam Nov. 15 in 36th District Court.
