OAK PARK, Mich. – Oak Park police are investigating a deadly shooting Monday that left a 26-year-old woman hospitalized after a neighbor allegedly shot her for being too loud.

The shooting happened at 1:44 a.m. Monday on Miller Street near Greenfield Road, police said.

Authorities said a dispute over noise escalated into a physical confrontation. A 35-year-old Detroit man rent into a home and got a gun, police said. When he returned, he fired the gun toward the other group, striking a 25-year-old Oak Park woman multiple times, according to officials.

The man was arrested and a pistol was recovered, police said.

The woman was taken to a nearby hospital by family members, but she died from her wounds.

A 29-year-old Oak Park man was grazed by a bullet in the leg, police said.

The case will be forwarded to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for possible charges once the investigation is complete.
