MILAN, Michigan (WTVG) - A Michigan man was arraigned Monday in connection with a shooting Saturday night that left one person in critical condition.

24-year-old Shaun Johnathan Prato of Warren was arraigned in First District Court on counts of assault with intent to murder, carrying a concealed weapon, felony firearm, and fleeing and eluding. His bond was set at $500,000.

Police found a 21-year-old Ohio man who had been shot multiple times at Milan Beach just before 7:30 p.m. Saturday. He was taken to a hospital and authorities said he was in critical condition. The victim’s identity has not been released.

According to police, witnesses saw a black SUV flee from the scene of the shooting. A deputy with the Monroe County Sheriff’s office saw a car that matched that description while searching the area afterward and attempted to make a traffic stop. The driver of the SUV led the deputy on a police chase — eventually stopping at Sylvania Petersburg Road near Sterns Road in Whiteford Township, Michigan.

Two men, Prato and a 22-year-old from Taylor were taken into police custody. The man from Taylor was later released after questioning by detectives.

According to the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, the investigation indicates there was a fight between the victim and suspect leading up to the shooting. The office is still investigating the incident and is asking anyone with information to call 734-240-7530.
