Competency Exam Ordered For Suspect In Milford Carjacking Attempt
March 29, 2018
A competency evaluation has been ordered for a Detroit man charged with attempting to carjack two vehicles in Milford.
21-year old Kamil Gillette of Detroit was arrested March 14th following the incident in the parking lot of the Prospect Hill shopping plaza at Highland Avenue and Summit Street. Gillette had reportedly stolen a vehicle from the Royal Oak area the night before and made his way to Milford where the car became disabled. Attempting to carjack a new vehicle, Gillette allegedly approached a car with an elderly female, which bystanders saw and called 9-1-1. As he made an attempt at a second car, officers pulled onto the scene and say Gillette began walking towards the Kroger store in the plaza.
Officers drew their guns after noticing he had an unknown object in his hand and asked him to show his hands. Police say Gillette repeatedly told the officers to shoot him and that he didn’t want to live. Once officers saw the object in his hand was a pair of scissors, they used a Taser to get him into custody.
In court Wednesday for a probable cause conference, it was determined that Gillette would undergo a competency evaluation. A June 13th hearing was set to review the findings. (JK)
