Husband and wife face charges in Dearborn daycare shooting

COME UP A WINNER IN THE NEW REPUBLICAN PLAN? >>> A DEARBORN HUSBAND AND WIFE FACE CHARGES IN A SHOOTING AT A DAY CARE.

WHY POLICE FIND IT TROUBLING AND UNACCEPTABLE.

>> Announcer: LOCAL 4 ANYONE'S RIGHT NOW WITH A "BREAKING NEWS ALERT.

" >> Karen: GOOD AFTERNOON! I'M KAREN DREW.

WE'RE GETTING A FIRST LOOK AT THIS HUSBAND AND WIFE, BOTH FACING CHARGES IN A SHOOTING AT THEIR UNLICENSED DAY CARE IN DEARBORN.

TWO 3-YEAR-OLDS WERE SHOT AND DID SURVIVE.

LOCAL 4'S ROD MELONI WAS IN COURT TODAY.

ROD, ONE OF THE BIG QUESTIONS EVERYONE IS CONTINUING TO ASK IS HOW DID SUCH YOUNG CHILDREN GET THEIR HANDS ON A GUN? >> Rod: THAT'S WHAT CAME OUT IN COURT TODAY.

AND ALSO IN THE PAPERS THAT PROSECUTOR KYM WORTHY PUT OUT.

APPARENTLY, THERE WERE T HANDGUNS IN THE HOUSE AND T EUBANKS, TIMOTHY AND SAMANTHA, BOTH 32 YEARS OLD, WERE RUNNING ILLEGAL DAY CARE OPERATION.

AN THE BOYS KNEW WHERE THE GUNS WERE.

THE 3-YEAR-OLD FOUND THE GUN AND SHOT THE OTHER TWO CHILDREN, ONE IN THE EYE AND ONE THROUGH THE HEAD AND INTO THE SHOULDER.

THE POLICE CHIEF TODAY SAID THAT THE EXPECTATION IS THAT THEY'RE GONNA NEED LIFE-LONG CARE AS A RESULT OF THE SHOOTING.

THERE YOU SEE THE EUBANKS IN COURT TODAY.

IT WAS THEIR ARRAIGNMENT.

TIMOTHY WAS CHARGED WITH 6 COUNTS OF SECOND-DEGREE CHILD ABUSE AND SAMANTHA WAS CHARGED WITH 12 COUNTS OF SECOND-DEGREE CHILD ABUSE AND A COUPLE OF FELONY FIREARMS COUNTS.

THEY COULD SPEND UPWARDS OF TEN YEARS OR MORE IN PRISON.

LET'S HEAR FROM THE CHIEF AND GET HIS TAKE ON WHAT TRANSPIRED ON HUBBARD STREET THAT DATE BACK IN SEPTEMBER.

>> WE AS, QUOTE, UNQUOTE, RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERS HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE.

THE FACT THAT A MINOR, A TODDLER, COULD PICK UP A GUN AND WITHOUT GETTING TOO FAR INTO THIS, THAT MINOR, THAT TODDLER, APPARENTLY KNEW HOW TO FIRE THAT WEAPON, IS VERY TROUBLING TO ME.

>> Rod: THE CHIEF WENT ON TO SAY HE THINKS AMERICANS NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB IN TERMS OF GUN SAFETY.

THE, QUOTE, UNQUOTE, GUN OWNERS, RESPONSIBLE GUN OWNERS, NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB OF PROTECTING THEIR WEAPONS AND KEEPING THEM AWAY FROM PEOPLE WHO SHOULDN'T HAVE THEM.

THERE'S A $20,000 BOND SET.

IT WAS INTERESTING THE DEARBORN POLICE DEPARTMENT SAID THE EUBANKS WERE VERY COOPERATIVE WITH THEM THE DAY OF THE SHOOTING AND THEREAFTER AND THEY WERE RECOMMENDING THE LIGHTER BOND.

MORE COMING UP ON LOCAL 4 NEWS AT 5:00.

REPORTING LIVE IN DEARBORN, ROD.
