It's unclear what the exact relationship was between Sharita Williams and Myron Williams. They were not related. Both were married but something was going on between the two.

Coworkers first learned of the issue last week when police arrived at the building.

"Police were here last week regarding some photographs involving some of the parties here, I guess," said Dr. Stuart Kirschenbam, who heard gunshots.

Gunshots heard Monday night at Myron Williams' home

Police were at Mryon Williams' home Monday night in northwest Detroit. They went to the home after gunshots were reported. Neighbors say they heard those shots.

"The only thing that I heard was a gunshot, and it was only one shot, and I came to the door and I saw (Myron), and I said, 'What were you doing back there?" He said that somebody had just shot at him," said a neighbor.

Investigators say Williams had become obsessed with Sharita Williams. He was told to stay away from her. However, he was back on Tuesday.

Police say he opened fire just moments after employees walked in the door.
