COMSTOCK TOWNSHIP (WKZO) -- There has been a murder in Comstock Township. Undersheriff Pali Matyes says it appears a 42-year-old man shot a 40-year-old woman to death at a home in the 69-hundred block of East Main.

He says they got a 9-1-1 call about 8:50 last evening from a neighbor. The first arriving police officers were quickly able to determine that it was a murder and arrest the suspect, who was in the area.

Matyes says they are still sorting out what happened, and what the motive was for the killing and the relationship between the two. County Detectives, with the help of the forensics team from the city, spent much of the night processing the crime scene.

The suspect is being held at the Kalamazoo County Jail pending the issuance of warrants.

No names are being released until they have tracked down and notified family members of the victim.
