Cousin: Man accused in Detroit Halloween murder told victims 'one of ya'll gotta die'

- The cousin of a man accused of killing a teen and shooting three others on Halloween took the stand Monday to describe what happened.

Antonio Hubbard, 25, is accused of shooting four teenagers of Halloween, killing one of them. He was charged with 16 counts including first degree murder, felony murder, armed robbery and torture.

His own cousin was among the shooting victims. He took the stand to describe that afternoon at the house on Langholm.

"He walked to the door and pointed his gun at me first and said - don't move," he said.

The victim testified that Hubbard's friend took their money, between $800 to 900, and their phones, as well as their pot.

"Just pointed the gun saying one of ya'll gotta die," he said. "He was pointing the gun at all of us."

The victim testified that they ended up in a back room.

"When he came back in the room, he shot me first," he said. "In my chest and both times in arms. ... I grabbed my chest and ran in the closet."

One of the teenagers was killed. The three other teens were shot but survived, while the suspects took off. Days later, arrests were finally made after a shootout on the city's east side.

Hubbard was arrested after barricading himself inside a home. Now he could spend the rest of his life behind bars for first degree murder. The hearing will continue in December.
