A murder at an ATM caught on surveillance camera


BYRON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Crime sprees are nothing new for the two Grand Rapids men charged in a late-night spree that killed a Kentwood man at an ATM on Tuesday night, court records show.

They worked together in burglaries three years ago in the Grand Rapids area, according to court records.

Rhishy Manning, 22, and Jaheim Hayes-Goree, 20, were arraigned Friday afternoon at the 63rd District Court on crime of homicide, conspiracy to commit armed robbery and weapons. A lawyer said the two maintained their innocence.

Deputies said they arrested a third suspect, a 23-year-old man from Grand Rapids, on Thursday night. It is unclear what charges this suspect will face.

Shooting killed Joseph Wilder, 50, a married father of three who led his church choir.

In 2019, Manning and Hayes-Goree were co-accused in criminal burglaries at Creston Market on Plainfield Avenue NE and the former Sprint PCS store on Northland Drive NE.

Manning, who already had a criminal history, was sentenced to 18 months in prison after pleading guilty to six break and enters in Kent and Ottawa counties, prison records show. He was released in October 2021 and placed on parole.

Hayes-Goree was sentenced to 182 days in jail in 2019 on two counts of breaking into buildings in Kent County, state police records show.

In the latest case, according to court records, the two suspects were armed with firearms as they walked either side of Wilder’s van past an ATM on Tuesday night. As Wilder tried to walk away, one of the pair opened fire, shooting him in the head, records show.

The Huntington Bank ATM surveillance camera, 6444 S. Division Ave. near M-6, captured the attack around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. Wilder’s family said he drove to the bank a mile from his home to make a deposit.

Wilder had just stopped at the ATM when the suspects in an SUV drove up behind him, according to court documents. Surveillance video shows a man from the SUV approached from the passenger side and pointed a gun at the victim before heading to the driver’s side. The second suspect then approached from the passenger side, also with a gun. Wilder started his van when the first man shot and killed him.

Authorities are investigating a fatal shooting in Byron Township on May 25, 2022.

A witness reported hearing two shots and seeing the suspect fire a shot into the van, then watched the van continue, crashing into a fence across the street. Investigators said they recovered two shell casings.

MPs say the homicide was part of a series of crimes that lasted about five hours From Tuesday evening to early Wednesday, this included four thefts and a stolen car.

In court records, investigators say that after the shooting, the suspects drove a blue Chevrolet Equinox into the 700 block of South Division Avenue and stole a white Audi. Just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, Walker police spotted the Audi and launched a pursuit that ended in an accident on Alpine Avenue and Four Mile Road NW. Police said “several” people fled the car. They arrested the accused gunmen after a search with tracking dogs and drones.

Among the evidence cited in court records: Manning and Hayes-Goree wore clothing that matched the sartorial description of the bank’s surveillance cameras; deputies found a gun in the stolen Audi that matched the one shown on the bank’s camera; and they found Manning’s phone in the Audi.

Investigators said they downloaded location data from the phone indicating it was at the Huntington Bank ATM at the time of the shooting.

The suspects were held without bail in the murder. They are expected in court next month for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to send the case to trial.
