Two arraigned in deadly Flint crime spree

Quantez Ayers

Two suspects caught after last week's "crime spree" have been arraigned in 67th District Court Monday.

Quantez Ayers, age 17, and Alonzo McCovery II, age 18, were charged with Armed Robbery and Felony Firearm.

Ayers, McCovery, and a third suspect have been accused of a series of crimes, starting with a carjacking on Wednesday night.

As the night progressed, so did their crimes, say police.

At around 8:50 pm police believe two of the suspects robbed a 57-year-old man at gunpoint at the intersection of Illinois and Iowa.

At 12:35 am, police then responded to a shooting on Leith and Dort. A 45-year-old woman was shot and is now in good condition.

From there, police said the suspects shot and killed a man on Sheffield Avenue in Flint.

The suspects did not stop there.

After the shooting, police said they robbed another man at gunpoint in the Hunters Ridge Apartments in Flint Township.

A short time later, police spotted the suspect vehicle and a chase ensued.

The suspects parked their car near the intersection of Copeman Blvd. and Melbourne Ave. in Flint Township and fled on foot.

Police immediately caught one suspect.

They later arrested two others. One of the suspects was released after police determined he was not involved in the crimes.

Monday's arraignment dealt just with crimes that police say were committed in Flint Township.
