Detroit man arraigned in shooting of 84-year-old woman's home

- The man accused of firing shots into several Detroit homes and terrorizing a neighborhood faced a judge Friday for the first time.

Robert McLendon was arrested Wednesday Dec. 5 after police were called out to a home in the 3200 block of Hazelwood, which is near Joy Road and Dexter Avenue. Police say the 29-year-old is responsible for terrorizing a neighborhood and now he's facing several charges.

Three women were inside the home and woke up to the sound of shattering glass in the middle of the night. 

Among the charges are four counts of assault with intent to murder; two counts of carrying a dangerous weapon with unlawful intent; eight counts of discharging a firearm at a building, and even a cocaine charge.

During his arraignment, the judge said he was a danger to society and ordered him held in jail.

The home of an 84-year-old woman in the 2000 block of Clairmount has also been shot at several times in the past few months. That's just a few blocks away from Hazelwood. Her home had as many as 100 bullet holes in it.

Prosecutors also said in court that he kept kill lists. 

McLendon will be back in court on December 14th for a probable cause hearing.
