Waterford Township — Police said they have a suspect in custody in the fatal shooting of a 24-year-old woman, whose body was found lying in the street on the township’s southeast side Sunday night.

No one has been charged in the shooting, which police Chief Scott Underwood said does not appear to have been a random act.

In a news release, Underwood said about 8:46 p.m. Sunday police received a 911 call regarding gunshots heard in the area of LaSalle Street, west of Telegraph Road. Police found the victim dead from a gunshot wound.

With information obtained by neighbors and witnesses, police learned several gunshots were heard and several vehicles seen in the area around the time of the incident.

One tip led investigators to a Pontiac address where a search warrant was executed and a man taken into custody who is not yet charged but is being held in the Oakland County Jail.

Police released no additional information on the victim or the suspect.
