Fedarius Shine, (pictured) 28, went on a shooting rampage Friday evening that killed his 66-year-old grandmother, his 48-year-old aunt, and left his 7-year-old daughter in critical condition.
According to police, Shine was mumbling perturbed comments inside a home on the 13500 block of Winthorp on the west side of Detroit. Then around 6:45 p.m., Shine went into a rage, brandished a firearm, and began shooting rounds throughout the house. Shine’s mother was also at the house but was not harmed. After the carnage, Shine allegedly exited the house and fled on a bicycle.
Detroit police then embarked on a relentless manhunt for Shine after he was established as a prime suspect in the tragic triple shooting. During the manhunt police raided the home of 27-year-old Monica Stewart. Stewart is the mother Shine’s other child, a 6-year-old son. She said she was unaware of the shooting when police made contact with her. Stewart said the following comments to Detroit Free Press in an interview:
“I don’t know what put him on that rampage like that. All I can say is he acted crazy, but he never acted crazy like that to kill his own loved ones. Something was really going on through his head to make him flip like that.” (Detroit Free Press)
Stewart also said that she took out an order of protection against Shine in the past because of his violent behavior. Shine checked himself into the psychiatric division of a local hospital after the triple shooting. According to police, Shine has a license to carry a concealed weapon.
