Prosecutor Kym Worthy has charged Kimani Lamarr Waiters, 22 (DOB: 09/03/1995), of Highland Park, Donte Davis, 26 (DOB: 06/22/1991) of Detroit, and Marquett Antoine Jones, 25, (DOB: 04/13/1993), also of Detroit, in connection with a carjacking and armed robbery. On June 20, 2018 at Hemlock and Ternes Streets in Dearborn, it is alleged that the three defendants committed an armed robbery and carjacking of a 32-year-old-male victim. Waiters is alleged to have driven the carjacked vehicle away, while Davis and Jones drove away in another vehicle.
A Dearborn officer received information about the stolen vehicle and attempted to stop it at Williamson and Henn Streets in Dearborn. It is alleged that Waiters drove the vehicle towards officer and fired three to four shots through the windshield at him. The officer returned one shot. Neither the officer nor Waiters were hit or injured. Waiters drove away on Henn Street when he encountered another Dearborn police vehicle that collided with the car Waiters was driving. Waiters fled from the car on foot and was later arrested by the Dearborn officers while he was observed walking in an area near the carjacking. Investigation led to the arrest of Davis and Jones.
