“It appears mom had been planning this and was that adamant that she did not want her leaving with him,” Clarkston Police Detective Jason Elliot was quoted as telling Channel 2 Action News.
The detective narrated that the upset mother had gone to a nearby pawn shop to purchase a revolver following a heated argument between family members inside the apartment a day before the incident. Eh was shot several times in the kitchen the next morning. The mother even tried to shoot the gun on herself but her daughter was able to wrestle it away.
“It appears they were in the kitchen preparing breakfast. There was no type argument or even altercation. It’s looking like mom just walked up behind the victim and shot him,” Elliot added.
The heartbroken daughter, who’s currently four months pregnant, shared that she was shocked by her mother’s actions.
“It was surprising I never thought something like this was going to happen,” Be told Channel 2. “He’s a very good, innocent guy.”
