EASTPOINTE, Mich. – Police say a woman, 63, and a man, 57, were shot to death Friday night by an angry ex-boyfriend of one of the 63-year-old woman’s daughters.
On Saturday, police in Ohio arrested the suspect, along with his father.
The two were arrested outside of Bowling Green, Ohio.
Officers responded to the shooting at around 7:30 p.m. on March 25 at an Eastpointe home in the 15000 block of Veronica Avenue. Upon arrival, officers discovered both of the bodies inside the home. Officials said that the woman’s daughters are typically at the home with her.
Of the two daughters, one of them has an ex-boyfriend who came to the home Friday night, likely in search of the daughter. But he ultimately shot and killed her mother and her uncle, instead, officials said.
The daughter was not home at the time of the shooting.
Neighbors told Local 4 that they didn’t hear gunshots. Instead, the only reason they knew something was going on in their neighborhood was because they first heard a woman scream, and then they came outside and saw the police outside the home.
