A Dearborn man charged with the shooting death of a Detroit man will face a full trial, the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office announced Monday.
Ibrahim Saleh, 23, is charged with first-degree murder and felony firearm possession in the death of Michael A. Haynes, 24, of Detroit. Police say the incident arose from a scuffle over the sale of condoms at the gas station where Saleh worked as an attendant.
Saleh's preliminary examination was held Monday in Detroit's 36th District Court. He was bound over for trial on both charges.
According to the prosecutor’s office, Haynes arrived at the BP gas station on the 10800 block of Fenkell at approximately 1 a.m. March 10 to purchase condoms.
Saleh–who was working in a bullet-proof, glass-enclosed room–got into an argument with Haynes, after which Haynes allegedly knocked over several shelves of merchandise.
Saleh then exited the enclosed room with a handgun and allegedly shot Haynes in the back.
If convicted, the first-degree murder charge carries a sentence of life in prison without parole, while the felony firearm charge carries a sentence of two years in prison.
Saleh's arraignment is scheduled for July 23 at 9 a.m. in Wayne County Circuit Court.
