Man, 20, arrested in fatal shooting at Madison Heights motel Monday
A 29-year-old Detroit woman is dead after she was shot at a Madison Heights motel Monday, police said.
Officers were called at about 5:20 a.m. to the Rodeway Inn on Stephenson Highway near 14 Mile for a report of a noise disturbance, according to authorities.
Police were directed to a room and conducted a welfare check. They located the victim with an apparent gunshot wound to the torso inside the motel room, officials said. Police are not releasing her name at this time.
According a preliminary investigation, the victim resided at the motel with a 20-year-old Detroit man, who was not at the scene. Detectives searched the area for him.

The investigation is ongoing and police will submit their findings to the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
