A 34-year-old woman is under arrest and her 36-year-old boyfriend is dead after a shooting at their Pontiac home late Friday night, police said.


The fatal shooting took place at 11:51 p.m. Friday, on the 600 block of Lydia Lane, which is north of Elizabeth Lake Road and east of Telegraph.

The Oakland County Sheriff's Office, the police agency for Pontiac, responded to a call from the woman, who said she'd shot her boyfriend and he was dead on the couch.

The woman told a dispatcher that the gun was still in the home, and that she would be waiting for police to arrive. 

A search of the home found an "obviously deceased male" lying on the couch. Multiple shell casings were found a short distance away, and a handgun was on the couch next to the victim.

The suspect is at Oakland County Jail, pending criminal charges.
