PONTIAC, MI – A 21-year-old Pontiac man is being held without bond in the Oakland County Jail in the July 4 shooting deaths of two men outside a Pontiac residence.
Dazon Louis Mathis was arraigned today by 50th District Judge Michael Martinez in Pontiac. Mathis is charged with two counts each of open murder – a life offense – and possession of a firearm in the commission of a felony. A conviction on the firearm charge carries a mandatory two-year prison term.
Mathis is accused of fatally shooting Christopher Cintron-Mateo, 30, and Jonathon Alvarado-Santiago, 29, both of Pontiac. The incident happened shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday outside a home in the 500 block of Valencia Drive. Deputies were sent to the home on the report of multiple gun shots fired. The victims were found lying in the street near a Chrysler 300 vehicle.
Investigators believe the shooting was the result of an altercation between the victims and Mathis.
The weapon believed to have been used in the shooting was recovered.
Mathis is scheduled to appear for a probable cause conference on July 15th at 1:30 p.m. before Martinez.
