Detroit (MyFoxDetroit) -

Ladon Richard woke up Sunday morning to three cars on fire in front of her home. The trunk of her Chevy Impala was torched, along with two other vehicles belonging to family members.

Richard witnessed the shooting near the Detroit Princess cruise ship. Now those connected are wondering if this act was a message of intimidation.

Richard was not on the cruise, but went to pick up her sister, who called for a ride after a fight broke out on the boat. A man involved in the fight was Michael Thomas. Shortly after, he allegedly ordered his wife, Latoiya Mitchell, to shoot into the crowd.

She allegedly did, striking six people - including Richard's sister and other family members. So Richard grabbed her registered gun and fired back, protecting her family. She struck Thomas in the back.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's Office still has not issued any charges, despite dozens of witnesses identifying the alleged shooter. There is even video, phone records, and 911 calls.

We've learned the prosecuting office is even asking police to submit a warrant request for Ladon Richard herself.
