MACOMB TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — A woman has been killed after calling 911 to report a dispute with her husband in suburban Detroit.

The Macomb County sheriff’s office says gunshots could be heard over the phone when the call was made early Saturday. Deputies found the 38-year-old woman dead. Her husband apparently shot himself and was in custody at a hospital.

A 16-year-old son in the Macomb Township home was not physically hurt. The sheriff’s office says there’s no record of deputies visiting the home in the past.

Neighbors couldn’t believe what happened. They said the couple appeared to be happy.

Benjamin Virga, who lives across the street, says he and the man joked about who had the cleanest car. Virga says gun violence “is truly an epidemic.”
