Detroit Mann wished to shoot in Shelby

Shelby Police are looking for a Detroit man charged with a shootout that injured his mother and daughter last week.

Police accuse Zaire Ali Muhammad of carrying out two attacks with a deadly weapon, with the aim of killing serious injuries and unloading weapons in occupied property.

Investigators believe Muhammad shot Kenya Youngblood, 35, and her 16-year-old daughter on Gold Street Wednesday night. The police have not yet found Muhammad.

What police started as an online argument between the 16-year-old and another teenager resulted in a crowd gathering outside a house on Gold Street and then being shot.

Just before the gunshots went off, Youngblood called 911 and told dispatchers that a crowd was gathering outside their home. While trying to protect her daughter, she had a gun and, according to previous reports, told the crowd to leave Youngblood’s property.

Several 911 callers reported gunshots in the 300 block of Gold Street around 8:46 p.m.

Parts of the filming were streamed by local people on several social media websites.

Anyone with information on Muhammad’s location should call the Shelby Police Department at 704-484-6845 and Cleveland County Crime Stoppers at 704-481-TIPS.
