Police report: Suspects in Michigan medical student's killing say shot fired accidentally

Statements from two suspects in the fatal shooting of a University of Michigan medical student say they sneaked into Paul DeWolf's basement bedroom at his medical fraternity during a burglary attempt.

The Detroit Free Press (http://on.freep.com/1cKAGTy ) reports it obtained police statements from two suspects jailed in the slaying. Twenty-five-year-old Paul DeWolf was found dead July 24.

The statements say three men broke into Phi Rho Sigma medical fraternity and entered DeWolf's basement bedroom, startling him. DeWolf went to get something from his dresser and one suspect tried to strike him with the gun, but it fired instead.

The newspaper says Ann Arbor police Detective Katie Nucci recounted the statements at a Nov. 22 warrant hearing for 21-year-old Shaquille Jones and another suspect.
