Grandma Shoots, Kills Grandson During Apparent Domestic Dispute
Police say domestic violence is likely to blame for the death of a teenager who was shot and killed by his 74-year-old grandmother in West Bloomfield Township.
Lt. Tim Diamond said the police department received a call from some neighbors around 5:30 p.m. Friday, indicating that they heard gunshots coming from an address in the 6000 block of Brookview Lane.
Diamond said the victim, 17-year-old Jonathan Hoffman, also called 911 to say he had been shot.
“Our officers responded and when they got there, they discovered that there was a male with gunshot wounds,” he said. “There were multiple gun shots. All of the shooting was done inside the house.”
Diamond said the grandmother was taken into police custody without incident and the teen was transported to Botsford Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 6 p.m.
The grandmother was also taken to the hospital for observation.
