A 19-year-old man was arraigned Friday on murder and other charges related to the fatal shooting of a 17-year-old boy during a Detroit robbery.

Dante Ford, 19, is facing charges for murder, assault with intent to murder, armed robbery, and gun charges. He’s accused of killing Corey Harris-Thomas, 17, who was trying to sell a pair of Nike Air Jordans.

Authorities say Harris-Thomas and a friend met with Ford Tuesday for what Harris-Thomas thought was going to be the sale of his sneakers. Instead, Ford shot Harris-Thomas and his friend as they sat in an SUV, then took off with the shoes.

Harris-Thomas was pronounced dead at the scene, while his friend’s current condition is not known.

Ford fled from the scene before police arrived, but was captured and arrested the following day.
