Michigan grandmother, 74, accused of shooting grandson dead in domestic dispute

A 74-year-old Michigan woman was arrested Friday after allegedly shooting dead her 17-year-old grandson.

The woman -- from West Bloomfield, northwest of Detroit -- was being monitored in the hospital Friday night before being taken to speak with police, when it is believed she will be charged with murder, myFOXdetroit.com reported.

A police spokesman said of the woman, "She is in custody, and she is at a local hospital at this time being checked out because of her age and the circumstances involved. Once she's cleared from the hospital, she'll be brought to the station."

Neighbors said the victim moved in with the woman and her husband six months ago, and police believe they had a volatile relationship. Officers responded to another domestic incident between the two in March.

The 17-year-old was pronounced dead at Botsford Hospital, having made a 911 call after being shot several times. Neighbors also phoned police to report hearing shots fired.
