FLINT, MI — A 20-year-old Flint man turned himself in on charges stemming from a critical shooting in November where police said the victim was shot five times.
Jakarie Monte Young was arraigned Friday, Dec. 11, on counts of assault with intent to murder and felony firearm. He is being held in jail on $250,000 bond.
Young turned himself in more than a week after Crime Stoppers released his identity, asking the community for help locating him, as he was wanted on felony charges. Julie Lopez, director for Crime Stoppers of Genesee County, said the charges stemmed from a shooting on Albert Street on Sunday, Nov. 7.
The day of the shooting, police were called to the 1700 block of Albert, near Page Street, at 7:59 p.m., for shots fired, and then for reports of a man down.
The man, who police said was shot five times, was listed in critical condition at the hospital.
Young’s attorney, Frank J. Manley, said the case was “very defendable.”
“We understand the charges are very serious, but a preliminary investigation has indicated that it is a very defendable case, and we look forward to court,” Manley said.
Young is scheduled to appear in court again for a probable cause conference Tuesday, Dec. 22, and for a preliminary exam Tuesday, Dec. 29.
