Police said Wonsowicz shot his wife inside the home and dropped the gun when officers arrived.

"He was yelling," neighbor Harley Edmonds said. "Banging on things, saying, 'I'm going to shoot.'"

Larocca was found with a gunshot wound to her face, authorities said. She was taken to McLaren Macomb Hospital, where she died from her injuries, medical officials said.

Wonsowicz is expected to be arraigned via video Tuesday at 41-B District Court in Clinton Township.
