A suspect has been charged in Tuesday's shooting death of Detroit legend Daniel "Dan" Hutchinson outside a pawn shop he owned on Greenfield Road in Oak Park, Michigan.

Hutchinson's wife was with him in his GMC Yukon Denali when a car pulled up in the next lane and someone opened fire, killing Hutchinson.

The SUV was riddled with more than a dozen bullets. Police say Hutchinson was targeted and his wife was not harmed.

Hutchinson was killed about a mile from his family-owned Hutch Jewelry store, north of Nine Mile. He reportedly had over $100,000 on him, but robbery was not a motive.

Roy Donta Larry, 44, was taken into custody the day of the murder. Police believe he's the triggerman and that he acted alone. Hutchinson's wife reportedly recognized Larry as a regular customer.

Larry is charged with first-degree murder and firearm possession. He pleaded not guilty in court on Friday, June 3, and was denied bond.

Hutchinson, 47, provided high-quality iced-out jewelry, nameplates and sports logos to his loyal customers. But he was best known for crafting iced-out Cartier glasses, known in the streets as "Buffs."

Hutchinson's list of celebrity clients included rappers such as Rick Ross and Sada Baby, boxer Adrien Broner, R&B singer Jacquees, and other local aspiring rappers.

Police have not revealed a motive behind Hutchinson's murder. There are rumors that Hutchinson worked with the federal government to identify customers who purchased jewels with illegally obtained PPP loans.

Hutch's Jewelry Instagram page has over 300,000 followers. A candlelight vigil for Hutchinson is scheduled for later today (June 4).
