FLINT, Mich. Authorities have arrested an 18-year-old Flint man they say fatally shot four people, including a 9-year-old boy.

Genesee County Prosecutor David Leyton announced first-degree murder charges Wednesday against Deonte I. Gray. Leyton says Gray killed three people on July 15 and one on Saturday.

MLive.com says the victims of the first killings were 9-year-old Trashawn Macklin, 25-year-old James R. Allen Jr. and 22-year-old Akeem Easterling.

Leyton says Gray briefly lived at the apartment where the shootings occurred and says he got in a fight with Easterling two weeks earlier.

Police say Gray also killed 29-year-old Greg Watkins at a store on Saturday.

It's unknown if Gray has a lawyer. There was no answer Wednesday evening at the county jail's phone number.
