It was a long night for neighbors, police and one White Lake family. According to reports, a husband and wife in their 30s were found dead in a home off Danforth late Monday night.
The woman's 8-year-old son ran to a neighbor's house to call for help around 9 p.m., telling police his stepfather had shot his mother, and then himself, according to White Lake Police.
Chief Ed Harris said the department had no history with the couple, who had only lived in the area for a year or so.
"We've never had any calls, there was no history of violence that we know of," Harris said.
The 8-year-old was taken to the station and released to his birth father.
The child told police, Harris said, that his mother and stepfather had been arguing prior to the shootings.
The incident remains under investigation, and the names of the couple won't be released until later in the day or tomorrow.
