The man believed to be the killer is identified as 49-year-old Lance Smith. He is described as having “no criminal history” and as not having “been in contact with police before the shooting”. No other details are provided about him.
A gunman involved in a domestic dispute killed his girlfriend and two women who came to her aid at a Detroit house, and wounded three officers during a 14-hour standoff that ended Monday when police found the suspect dead of a self-inflicted gunshot, authorities said Monday.
Police identified the dead suspect as Lance Smith, 49, who had no criminal history and had not been in contact with police before the shooting.
Police received a call about shots fired at the residence at 10:27 p.m. Sunday. The call was placed by an off-duty Detroit Public Schools police officer who happened to live in the neighborhood, Police Chief James Craig said.
