(CBS) – A Clinton Township man is accused of killing his mother and wounding his brother in a shooting.

Corey Deyshaun Cook, 24, is charged with first-degree murder, two counts of possession of a weapon and assault with intent to murder, according to the Macomb County District Attorney's Office. He was arraigned in 41B District Court and held on $1 million bail.

Prosecutors said Cook shot 49-year-old Yolanda Cook and her 31-year-old brother in their home on July 5, 2024. He then went to the Clinton Township Police Department and told officers he had shot two people.

Police conducted an investigation and found Yolanda Cook dead at the scene. Her brother was taken to a nearby hospital and is on a ventilator.

“Our office is committed to seeking justice for the victims and their families. We will ensure that the defendant is held fully accountable for this allegedly intentional act of violence,” Macomb County Prosecutor Peter Lucido said in a statement.

A hearing to determine whether there is sufficient suspicion of guilt is scheduled for July 22.
