A man has been charged in the fatal shooting of his 25-year-old friend.

Officers were called to Baker Auto Parts at 4:07 a.m. on Oct. 6 after a 911 caller said a man was having a medical emergency.

When officers arrived, live-saving measures were administered, but the man, now identified as Maurice Trevion Williams, did not survive.

D/Sgt. Matt Gerow with the Saginaw Police Department said early that morning Lawson, Williams, and another person were behind the business at 2401 E. Holland Avenue shooting target practice. Officer nearby heard the shots, but when they got to the location all three had gone inside and turned off the lights, Gerow confirmed. Police didn’t find anything.

A couple of hours later a gunshot went off inside the auto parts building, with projectile hitting Williams. That’s when 911 was called.

Harold Lawson,32, was charged on Oct. 12 with one count of careless use of a firearm causing injury or death in connection with the incident.

The other person was arrested but has since been released and was not charged.
