The chain of events that led to the police shooting of a sleeping 7-year-old may have begun with an argument over dirty looks in an east-side liquor store parking lot.

Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy authorized a murder warrant Wednesday against the man police were seeking when they killed Aiyana Stanley Jones while raiding her home early Sunday.

Chauncey Louis Owens, 34, of Detroit will be arraigned today on charges of first-degree murder, being a four-time felony offender and gun charges in connection with Friday’s shooting death of 17-year-old Southeastern High School senior Jerean Blake.

‘The death of Jerean Blake is as senseless as it can get,’ Worthy said. ‘The allegations are that the defendant killed the 17-year-old high school student because he looked at the defendant the wrong way.’

Blake was shot in front of numerous witnesses in a parking lot on Mack Avenue near St. Jean.
