Shooting Suspect Charged with Assault, Firearms Charges

A 60-year-old man is charged with assault and several other felonies after allegedly shooting another man in Saginaw on Monday.

The shooting took place around 3:50 A.M. in a residential driveway in the 2600 block of Narloch St. Police say Steven Adams of Saginaw was a passenger in a parked vehicle where he shot and wounded a 47-year-old man in the leg. The man was treated for his injury at a local hospital. Adams was arrested and was charged Thursday in Saginaw County with Assault with Intent to Cause Great Bodily Harm, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Felon in Possession of Ammunition, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon, as well as four counts of Possessing a Firearm During the Commission of a Felony.

Adam’s defense attorney says his client suffers from mental health issues and has asked the court to refer him to Community Mental Health for assessment. Adams is being held on a $75,000 bond.
