A Dearborn resident has been sentenced to 10 to 30 years for the fatal shooting of another man in 2023, court records said.

Zayed Albodour, 53, received the sentence Friday from Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Bridget Hathaway in Detroit on a count of second-degree murder and a count of using a firearm during the commission of a felony under a plea agreement, according to court records.

Albodour pleaded guilty to the charges in April, records show. He was initially charged with first-degree murder and using a firearm during a felony.

His attorney was not immediately available for comment Tuesday.

Albodour was arrested in connection with the July 6 fatal shooting of a 28-year-old man at a home in the 2200 block of Olmstead Street near West Outer Drive and Monroe Street on Dearborn's west side.

Police were called to the home at about 12:55 a.m. and found the victim dead from a gunshot wound.

According to media reports, Albodour was running an illegal dental clinic in the basement of his Dearborn home and he and the victim got into an argument over dental work.

The fight escalated until Albodour shot the man.
