Nicholas Raad Bahri Macomb County Jail

A Michigan man is facing homicide charges for the execution-style killing of a Black man, his son and his girlfriend, The Detroit News reported.

On Oct. 1, Nicholas Raad Bahri reportedly killed Tukuyo Moore, and then went on to shoot his girlfriend Isis Rimson and six-year-old son Tai’raz Moore.

Cops found Tukuyo’s slain body in the backseat of a rental car. Hours later, following a welfare check, they discovered the bodies of the woman and child in the basement of their Warren home.

All three individuals suffered gunshot wounds to the head.

According to detectives, the Moore home was “ransacked.” Drugs, guns and $40,000 were also discovered. It is believed Bahri and Tukuyo may have been involved in drug trafficking.

Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer said Bahri’s actions were “all about drugs and money,” noting “violent acts among drug dealers” are common.

“But killing a baby, a 6-year-old, has shaken not just the tri-county area, but has shocked the nation ... only monsters or godless creatures would pull the trigger on a 6-year-old,” he said.

As Warren is a city known for having racism issues, Dwyer is demanding federal authorities investigate the crime for potential hate crime charges.

“Nicholas Bahri. Barbarian. Child Killer...He will serve his time,” he said. “I have talked to [Detroit U.S. Attorney] Matthew Schneider. I’ve talked about this before as far as possibly taking this person under criminal capital offense. Mr. Schneider is monitoring the case very closely.”

He is also calling for Bahri to receive the death penalty, but as it is currently banned in Michigan, the case must make first make its way through federal court before that ruling is obtained.

“When you murder a six-year-old innocent baby, the person or persons responsible deserve the death penalty,” Dwyer said.

Bahri was arrested on Friday (Oct. 9). He has been indicted on three homicide charges, three charges of committing a felony while possessing a gun, three charges involving a felon carrying a gun and one charge of mutilating a dead body.
