Alleged Noel Night teen shooter to be charged with ‘adult …

DETROIT, MI — A 16-year-old accused of causing mass chaos and opening fire during the annual Noel Night holiday celebration in Detroit’s Midtown on Dec. 2 could be sentenced as an adult if found guilty. 

The juvenile, Calvin Stephens, of Detroit, is charged with four counts of assault with intent to murder and felony firearm.

The victims, who all survived, include: a 19-year-old man, 17-year-old girl, and two boys, 14 and 16. 

The shooting, which stemmed from an argument, occurred about 7:30 p.m.  between Detroit Institute of Arts about the Detroit Science Center.

Detroit Police Chief James Craig said nearly 120 officers were assigned to patrol the 45th annual holiday celebration that draws thousands. 

Because Stephens is being charged with an adult designation, that means he’ll face trial in juvenile court. If found guilty, the designation means he could be sentenced as a juvenile, as an adult, or receive a mixed sentence consisting of time spent in the juvenile detention system before transfer to the adult system.

Stephens is scheduled to appear in juvenile court Tuesday at 9 a.m.
