Lapeer County Couple Dead after Apparent Murder-Suicide in Davison

A couple from Lapeer County are dead after what investigators say appears to be a murder-suicide Wednesday afternoon in Davison.

According to police, a 67-year-old man arrived at a residence in the 100 block of West Third Street where his wife was visiting a family member. Police say an argument broke out and the man shot his wife before turning the gun on himself.

Police reportedly delayed entry into the house following the shooting because they were unsure whether or not the husband still posed a threat.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene. His wife was taken to Hurley Medical Center, where she died of her injuries.
