REDFORD, Mich. (FOX 2) - No one was injured during a shootout at a Redford gas station, however police are still investigating the incident.
With one person in custody, they're asking for help finding the other party involved. Currently held on a $25,000 bond, Yohance Taylor of Dearborn Heights was arraigned Friday on one charge of carrying a concealed weapon.
"He does have his permit, the firearm, he has it registered," said Defense Attorney Richard Glanda, "and he's asserting a self-defense claim your honor. What he tells me, I think it's a very valid defense at this point."
More than a week ago on April 24, Taylor was walking around a Marathon gas station when him and another unidentified man started shooting at each other. Located on Telegraph near Schoolcraft, Glanda said the unidentified man started loading his gun.
"The individual started placing a bullet into his chamber and that's when my client retrieved his firearm," said Glanda.
Prior to the other individual loading his weapon, Taylor's girlfriend said the two had exchanged words.
"He said something to my boyfriend first, he said 'do you have a problem?'" said Kayla Clay-Stubbs. "He was just walking into the gas station."
Clay-Stubbs said Taylor responded "No, do you have a problem?" That's when the man pulled out a gun.
"He cocked it back so Yohance pulled out his gun," she said.
The men exchanged five shots, although no one was hit.
"What could he have done? Be dead or defend himself. Either way, it's just wrong."
Redford police have shared a photo of the man who was also at the gas station, hoping if anyone recognizes him to notify them.
