DETROIT, MI – Gionni Luv Carrington, 20-years-old, of Detroit, was charged today with two counts of Felonious Assault, Felony Firearm, and one count of Carrying A Concealed Weapon in a Motor Vehicle.
On September 20,2018, at 3:30 p.m. Gionni Carrington was driving his car on Seven Mile and Ponchatrain Drive. He, heard the car behind him honking the horn because there was almost a collision. It is alleged that Carrington pulled out a hand gun and pointed it at the driver of the car that honked. The car was driven by a 28-year-old off duty Detroit police officer who had his mother in the passenger seat.
When the off-duty officer saw Gionni Carrington pointing a gun at him, he drew his weapon and fired it to protect himself and his mother. Carrington was not shot during the incident. The off-duty officer pulled over after firing the shots to avoid any further confrontation with the defendant and then immediately drove to the 12th Precinct to report the incident.
Gionni Carrington is expected to be arraigned tomorrow in 34th District Court in Romulus after 11:00 a.m.
