HARPER WOODS, Mich. (AP) — Authorities have charged three people in a fatal shooting outside a suburban Detroit shopping mall.

The Wayne County prosecutor’s office said 18-year-old Brendon Stanton-Lipscomb and 17-year-olds Demetrius Armour and Tyshon Taylor were arraigned Friday on first-degree murder and assault charges and sent back to jail. The Detroit residents are accused of killing 17-year-old Tyrell Lane of Eastpointe last Saturday as he was leaving an Eastland Center store.

Prosecutor’s spokeswoman Maria Miller says they are expected to get court-appointed attorneys.

Prosecutors say the trio was involved in assaults of two other teens at the mall. More details are expected to be released at preliminary examination scheduled for Jan. 20 at Harper Woods district court.

Probable cause conferences have been set for Jan. 13.

Police say it wasn’t a random shooting.
