Officers found the body of 26-year-old Redford resident Brandon Williams when they got inside the home.

Police say the Redford man was shot multiple times by a 27-year-old Inkster man while trying to make his way inside.

Williams was trying to break into his ex-girlfriend’s condo who is also 27-years-old.

She had phoned police to report a man she knew was trying to break down her door.

During the woman’s 911 call several gunshots were heard over the phone. When police arrived they found all three inside the condo.

Police have been called to the same condo before to revolve disputes between Williams and the woman.

During this particular incident Williams managed to force his way inside the home. Williams’ body was found at the top of the stairway leading to the second floor of the condo.

A 9mm handgun was taken as evidence. The gun was registered to the man who has a concealed pistol license.

On Monday, the woman and man were brought in for questioning. Both were released from custody by the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office as the case continues to be investigated. The case will be presented to the prosecutor’s office for review once the investigation is complete.
