DETROIT (TCD) -- A 45-year-old male out on bond was taken into custody Thursday on suspicion of killing a 40-year-old mother of two in her driveway.
Detroit Police announced Wednesday that they were searching for David Hammond after a woman was "gunned down outside of her home." The shooting occurred on the 16900 block of Carlisle Street around 9 a.m. She had reportedly just gotten home after dropping her two children off at school. Hammond was deemed "armed and dangerous" as police looked for him.
According to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, Hammond was out on bond on charges of second-degree arson, felonious assault, and aggravated domestic violence. The crimes allegedly occurred between Sept. 20 and Sept. 25, 2020. The Prosecutor’s Office said Tucker was the victim in said crimes.
A judge reportedly gave Hammond a $7,500 bond with a no-contact order earlier this month.
On Nov. 12, the officer in charge of the case reportedly spoke with the assistant prosecuting attorney and said Tucker had Ring surveillance footage allegedly showing Hammond in her yard. Tucker reportedly believed Hammond was the man in the video despite a hood covering his face. The officer in charge reportedly "did not say it was an emergency."
According to the Prosecutor’s Office, the assistant prosecuting attorney argued the lack of clear identification in the video would make a bond motion difficult, so a bond motion was not filed.
The Prosecutor’s Office said Hammond was remanded to jail pending a bond hearing on Nov. 22.
