DETROIT, MI – Charles Feiler, 50-years-old, of Detroit, is now facing charges in connection with the non-fatal shooting of a seven-year-old girl.
On April 14, 2021, at approximately 11:20 p.m., Detroit police were dispatched to a shooting at a residence in the 9800 block of Appoline Street in Detroit. Upon arrival, officers discovered Charles Feiler running inside his home.
