Police Charge Man in Fenton Township Shooting

David Eddie Collins faces life in prison on armed robbery, home invasion charges.

Police have charged a 23-year-old Flint man for his suspected involvement with a home on April 14.

Genesee County Sheriff’s Capt. Terence Green said police arrested David Eddie Collins on April 30 during another incident at a Flint home. Green said Collins became a suspect after it was discovered he received medical treatment at Hurley Hospital for a gunshot to the hand on April 17.  

He said the victim, Robert Johnson, and the suspects exchanged gunfire on April 14, when the suspects broke into the home looking for money.  

Randy Johnson said his son posted a picture of $5,000 in a box on Facebook and when the men entered the home, they asked him where the money was. Randy said the men ripped down the back gate and came in through the back door of the home, before ransacking the house and taking the $5,000.

Green said the suspects broke into the  on the 13000 block of Linden Road April 14 and at least six shots were fired from two different guns from both inside and outside the home. Green said there was blood upstairs, downstairs and near the front of the house. He also said there were shell casings throughout the house.

Green said Collins told police Kalien Stubbs also participated in the home invasion. Green said Stubbs was murdered in Flint on April 16.

Police have charged Collins  with armed robbery and home invasion. He faces up to life in prison. His preliminary examination is scheduled for May 16.

It's not as good in Fenton lately, either. My wife & I saw a prostitute on Adelaide and Wood, right across from St. John's. We looked at each other as we drove past and couldn't believe our eyes! I saw her the next day outside the party store at Adelaide & Silver Lake Rd., soliciting customers of the store as the came & went. Dressed like you imagine a skanky hooker would look and right in our little town.
