On Thursday, Sept. 3 at 5:52 p.m., the Oakland County Operations Center received a 911 call from a caller who stated, “I just killed my girlfriend” and then hung up the phone.
Oakland County Undersheriff Mike McCabe said
deputies responded to the scene in Springfield Township and found a 50-year-old man standing in the driveway outside the residence. He told the responding deputy, “I shot her. I killed her.”
Deputies entered the residence and found a 60-year-old female lying on the floor with no sign of life. She is believed to be the suspect’s live-in girlfriend. She had sustained multiple gunshot wounds. An ER doctor at McLaren Oakland Hospital in Pontiac pronounced her deceased.
A .380 semi-automatic handgun, which is believed to be the weapon used in the homicide, was found on a table in the basement. The suspect was lodged at the Oakland County Jail pending charges. He will most likely be arraigned late Friday or on Saturday.
Motive is unknown at this time. The Sheriff’s Special Investigations Unit will continue the investigation
