Macomb Man Charged in Detroit Mass Shooting Incident involving Dope House Murders

DETROIT, MI – A Macomb County man has been charged in connection with a two-year-old mass shooting at an alleged dope house in Detroit that resulted in the deaths of three men and the injury of two women.

Jony Saad Alatto, 32, of Macomb Township, was arraigned in 36th District Court in Detroit and remanded to jail by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office. Alatto faces multiple charges including felony murder, assault with intent to murder, armed robbery, felon in possession of a firearm, and felony firearm possession.

According to authorities, after shooting the victims, Alatto allegedly robbed the residents before fleeing the scene. The victims were identified as John Coffie Jr., Alphonso Henry, and Morriss Campbell Jr., with two women also wounded in the incident.

The tragic event took place at a known narcotics location, where police found all five victims suffering from gunshot wounds following reports of a shooting. Medics pronounced Campbell deceased at the scene, while Henry and Coffie later succumbed to their injuries at the hospital.

Prosecutor Kym Worthy commended the efforts of the Detroit Police Department and the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office in meticulously piecing together the case, expressing confidence that justice will be served.

Alatto, with a history of previous criminal convictions including home invasion and assault with intent, is scheduled for a probable cause conference and preliminary exam in June. He is believed to have a violent criminal past, as evidenced by his prior felony record.

The community remains shocked and saddened by the senseless violence that took the lives of three individuals and left two others wounded. As the legal process unfolds, the hope for accountability and closure for the victims’ families remains paramount in the pursuit of justice.
