Arrest Made In Racist Vandalism Of Suburban Detroit Home

An arrest has been made in connection with vandalism and shots fired into the home of a Black suburban Detroit family who have a Black Lives Matter sign in their front window, police said.

WARREN, Mich.: A 24-year-old white man has been charged with ethnic intimidation and other counts for firing shots into the home of a Black suburban Detroit family who put a Black Lives Matter sign in their front window.

Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer told reporters Wednesday that the man lives in the neighborhood and confessed to a series of incidents targeting that family and a separate incident in which the word pedophile was written on a garage door a few blocks away.

The man faces arraignment Thursday on eight felonies and one misdemeanor. His name was not released and he remained jailed. Dwyer said the man does not personally know the homeowners, Eddie and Candace Hall.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. APs earlier story follows below.

An arrest has been made in connection with vandalism and shots fired into the home of a Black suburban Detroit family who have a Black Lives Matter sign in their front window, police said.

Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer confirmed the arrest Tuesday night but did not elaborate on charges or the person arrested.

It was the No. 1 priority with the Warren Police Department from the day that hate crime took place, Dwyer told The Detroit News. We used just as much resources as we would in a homicide investigation.

On Sept. 7, shots were fired at Eddie and Candace Hall’s home in Warren.

Two days later, someone painted a swastika on one of their vehicles, slashed the tires and threw a large stone through their front window. Outside, they discovered the swastika and found that someone had written terrorist Black Lives Matter, not welcome and a phrase containing an expletive on their pickup truck.

The following day, someone fired a bullet through the Halls front window and police found six shell casings outside the house.

Home surveillance video showed a masked and hooded man carrying what appears to be a handgun outside the home.

Eddie Hall said his family has lived in Warren for about six years. The family has not removed the Black Lives Matter sign.
