2 women shot, killed at Detroit senior center

Police say that a 65-year-old man is in custody after he allegedly shot and killed 2 women at a Detroit senior center where the three of them lived.

MyFoxDetroit.com reported that Mike Reda, a resident at the Pablo Davis Elder Living Center, was found shortly after he slipped out a side door of the center following the shooting.

A neighbor, Paul Frantangelo, told the station that he was sitting outside the complex when he saw Reda armed with an AK-47.

"He told me to get on the ground and start praying," Frantangelo said. "He let off a round and he shot my friend in the head. My ears were starting to ring."

The identifies of the women have not been released, but MyFoxDetroit reported that both knew Reda and lived at the center. The Associated Press reported that Reda blamed the two women for his breakup with his girlfriend and that the shooting occurred after an argument between the two.

Police spokeswoman Kelly Miner told The Associated Press the man shot the first woman, who was in her 50s, as she sat on a bench outside the apartment building. Miner said he then went inside and shot the second woman, who was in her 60s.
