Charging documents also detail two alleged shootouts involving several of the suspects.

Authorities detail a June 9 incident in which Martin Garner and Sirrico Franklin were shot at while riding in a rental car used primarily by Smith.

Martin Garner was shot and taken to the hospital by Joshua Marchbanks, police said.

Investigators ultimately determined the men were not truthful in their description of the circumstances leading up to the shooting.

Authorities located a crime scene near 45th and Spruce – less than a block away from the Kensington residence. It was there authorities found the abandoned rental vehicle riddled with bullet holes. Police recovered several different styles of shell casings from the vehicle, leading authorities to believe a major gun battle took place.

Martin Garner was injured in the incident, treated and released from the hospital.

Police Seize More Than 4,500 Pills In Dearborn Drug Bust

  Police Seize More Than 4,500 Pills In Dearborn Drug Bust Police say a major drug bust in Dearborn led to thousands of prescription pills from being distributed on the street. The drugs were found on Thursday when the Michigan State Police Metro Narcotics Enforcement Team conducted a search warrant in the east end of Dearborn. More than 4,500 pills were recovered including oxycodone, hydrocodone, benzodiazepine, amphetamine, and a large amount of carasipradole. Police say the pills were going to be diverted to be sold on the street, where they could have fetched around $10,000.Also seized was $6,654 in cash and various other drug paraphernalia.

Police determined weapons were present and observed individuals in a vehicle that left the Kensington residence behave in a way that led them to believe violence was imminent. Documents said officers attempted to chase the suspect vehicle but ultimately terminated the pursuit. Police said that vehicle then ended up back at the Kensington residence.

Documents also detail a Sept. 9 shootout involving Roy Franklin. Surveillance video allegedly showed him arriving at the Kensington residence and transferring guns from a Cadillac sedan into a Jeep Cherokee parking in the back yard at the residence. He then got into the driver’s seat, Smith into the passenger seat, and drove off.

A short time later, police received reports of gunshots fired near 35th and Woodland in Kansas City. Investigators found several shell casings along with black tinted auto glass with bullet holes in it at the scene. Witnesses reported seeing a black Jeep Cherokee drive by with a passenger hanging out of the window and shooting.

Police said license plate readers nearby captured the dealer tag on the Jeep allegedly involved.

Authorities said surveillance video on the Kensington house showed the Jeep returning to the residence but missing its back windshield.

Charging documents state a confidential source told the FBI that Roy Franklin and Smith were targeting two men outside of a store near 35thand Woodland – the men were reportedly associated with a street gang known as “12thStreet.”

Duncan reportedly told the source he believed the men were outside the store waiting to kill him because he had a $50,000 contract on his head. When he saw the men outside the store, he reportedly called Franklin and Smith to come kill them.

Investigators ultimately found the black Jeep hiding under the back deck of the residence during the arrest sweep on Wednesday. Authorities also found bullet holes that originated inside the vehicle.
