Aaron Williams, 40, was at his home in the 12000 block of Grandmont Street near Plymouth Road in Northwest Detroit when his mother heard a loud noise coming from his room around 1 a.m. Oct. 22, police said.

His mother went to check on Williams and found him lying at the foot of his bed with a gunshot wound, officials said.
