Twins charged in shooting at Detroit coney shop that didn't serve mushrooms

Detroit Two Detroit men, twins age 61, face multiple felony charges in a Wednesday morning shooting at a coney shop on Detroit's west side that authorities say was provoked by the restaurant not selling fried mushrooms.

Arraignments are expected Sunday morning for Dwight and Duane Samuels at 34th District Court in Romulus, which handles weekend arraignments for all of Wayne County, said Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for Prosecutor Kym Worthy.

It was about 2 a.m. Wednesday, at Nicky D's coney shop on the 15700 block of West Seven Mile, when a 40-year-old man was beaten with a pipe and shot on his face, in an attack that was caught on camera.

The twins face an identical slate of eight charges: assault with intent to murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, firearm possession by a felon, carrying a concealed weapon, and four counts of felony firearm.

Police say the twins had been told that the restaurant does not sell fried mushrooms. One of them had been carrying a metal pipe; the other, a gun. Both, authorities say, allegedly used their weapons of choice to maim the victim, before fleeing from the scene in a vehicle.

6. Well, who puts chili on hot dogs?

Coneys do. Chili, onion, mustard. Maybe some hot sauce. Great.

Mushrooms? Maybe battered and deep fried as a side order.

The place didn't serve fried mushrooms, never had them on the menu. For that, these idiots shot a customer.

I wonder if they serve fried mushrooms in prison.

7. Honestly, I've never heard of a hot dog referred to as a coney.

I thought Coney Island was named after somebody, not that it was really "Hot Dog Island." Coney is another name for rabbit. Hot dog? Must be a regional thing. A hot dog with chili on it is a chili dog. A hot dog (or anything else) with onions on it is inedible.

8. Might as well be the official state food of Michigan

There are Coney Island restaurants everywhere in Michigan. We take our hot dogs very seriously here.

9. These two should never ever be released back into the public...doing what they did ...

to a fellow human being because of a single food item not being available (the place didn't even sell fried mushrooms). Thank goodness it was all caught on camera.
