Woman calls 911 before being killed in domestic dispute

MACOMB TOWNSHIP, MICH. - A woman has been killed after calling 911 to report a dispute with her husband in Macomb Township.

The Macomb County sheriff's office says gunshots could be heard over the phone when the call was made early Saturday from a home in the 16000 block of Country Ridge Lane. Deputies found the 38-year-old woman with multiple gunshot wounds to her body.

She was pronounced dead on the scene.

Her 44-year-old husband apparently shot himself and was in custody at a hospital. Deputies located a .40 caliber hand gun lying on the floor near the husband. The gun is registered to the husband.

A 16-year-old son in the Macomb Township home was not physically hurt.

The sheriff's office says there's no record of deputies visiting the home in the past.

The name of the victim is being withheld pending positive identification with the Macomb County Medical Examiner’s Office. The name of the suspect is being held pending warrant authorization and arraignment.
